Conversation in Six Parts
Laxman, a New York artist, sculpts substantial and elegant pieces. His chosen materials are metal and stone. He takes those raw composites and energetically transforms them into something at once very real and highly conceptual.Conversation in Six Parts was paid for by proceeds from IceFest as well as a generous donation from Cox Publishing, the parent company of Hamilton Journal News. Laxman was the winner of an international call to artists in 2008. The work was dedicated in October, 2009. The piece is a series of biomorphic forms that invite the viewer to reflect on their simple beauty. The six interlocking curvilinear sections have a dynamic interplay that suggest an animated conversation.
