Saat Saath Arts

This sculpture by Evan Holloway, one from a series, is a strange amalgamation hovering between Nature and Culture. The artist starts with simple wooden sticks, short tree branches actually, as his found objects. These are cast in bronze and welded into a structure with a geometric profile. It resembles a tree, but an industrially produced one. Adding to the artificiality are the rainbow colors the work is painted in, sort of demarcating different branches as in a scientific chart, but seeming more random than pre-meditated. The bright candy colors seem to emphasize the precise replication of the treesā€™ natural details but that also goes against any sort of logic. The meandering lines of the sculpture stand in opposition to the meandering lines of the floral patterns painted on the Palace walls, two opposing systems of Man replicating Nature.
