Chris Duncan - Lingo

Chris Duncan – Lingo

Steel and Concrete

Duncan used additive and subtractive sculptural processes to make this abstract sculpture. The artist made the work by welding together a steel armature and burying it in the ground. He then poured concrete over it, later removing some of the concrete to reveal the steel underneath. These multiple steps enabled Duncan to create Lingo’s various textural surfaces and its asymmetrically balanced form.
