Torus Orbicularis, 1988

John Newman Image

DESCRIPTION: (64" x 52" x 75") This piece, with its segmented, foliate structure, suggests biological forms like flowers, exoskeletons, fossils and shells. It also evokes mechanical parts such as ducts, motors and turbines. The cast aluminum surface enhances associations with machinery. Torus Orbicularis reflects John Newman's interest in the mathematics of topology, specifically how one shape can be transformed into another simply by bending, pushing and pulling its surfaces.
