Cube Cloud Gold

There are very few geometric forms in the natural world on a macro scale, so the cube is inevitably linked to Humans and Human intervention; I see the cube as a symbol of mans manipulation of the world; from building blocks to geometric patterns, from cities to computer screens. Although we are able utilise the Earths resources and alter the natural world, the Earth still dictates the major systems upon which we rely. We can modify the crops but we can’t make it rain.
‘Cube Cloud Gold’ is my conceptual homage to the rain, one of the most fundamental and life giving of all the Earths systems; it is not just a representation of a cloud but a very Human symbol of thanks and reverence.

Cube Cloud Gold is a conceptual sculpture, a version of the original ‘Cube Cloud’ but on a more accesible scale and with the addition of Gold Leaf. Since then I have had several clients both public and private commission this piece which has given me the opportunity to see cube cloud at different heights. The largest piece I have made is over 4.6metres tall for a sculpture garden and it looks fantastic, a real commanding statement piece. The cube can be made thick or thin.

The rain panels give the illusion of the rain falling from the cube whilst the cube seems to float effortlessly above the ground.
