Drew Goerlitz – Circinus


New York-based Goerlitz creates a different relationship between two recognizable objects first by enlarging the scale of the compass and anvil and then juxtaposing these two objects, he reverses the original relationship between a slender compass and a massive anvil. Goerlitz sees his sculpture as a “visual commentary on the conflict of gender in society”.  As such, the compass, usually thought of as a delicate instrument, towers over the masculine anvil.
