Yet this is tough, vigorous work, essentially intersecting cuboid forms that retain the sense of natural crystalline structures. They may be designed on digital 3D software that allows him to escape the constraints of gravity, but the natural world remains his principal inspiration: “Nature arrives at this perfect point between change and stillness” he once observed, also a good description of the new work at Pangolin London this month.
