Kimo 1967

Not on display

  • Scottish Art
With its base a half-section cylinder supporting a concave-convex vertical screen, 'Kimo' consists of a complex interplay of forms. The highly polished surface picks up and reflects the surroundings, distorting light and images. In contrast to earlier work, here Paolozzi pays respect to the extreme finish of sculpture from modernist times, eliminating traces of manufacture and notions of craftsmanship.
