It is certainly impressive - big! I, too, like the blue color and find it quite attractive even if I don't quite understand what it might mean...

Have a great day!

Not quite my cup of tea this type of sculpture. You captured it well and your info is always interesting.

These always seem so unexpected, so out of place. Like some sort of monolith in a futuristic movie. I like it!

Pacey said...

Ha, that's interesting. So abstract and what a great artwork of the artist. Very imaginative.

Lisa Wilson said...

Very eye-catching! I like the title 'Drawing in Space'!

Clytie said...

I like the color as well. It certainly stands out! I am not so much into "modern art", but I think this one could grow on me.

How totally cool! So...was it named after that big-eared personage on the newer Star Trek series???

(grin)

Gorgeous!

I like the exhibition name of Drawing in Space, and this sculpture is making a good go at drawing something with the blue pencils!
