Ramon Orlina (b. 1944)

Transcendence

2018

Carved pink crystal

52 x 23 x 8 cm (20 1/4 x 9 x 3 in)

Quick Overview

Internationally-renowned for his multi-faceted approach, Ramon Orlina harnesses the qualities of crystal to create a unique experience of harmony between contrasts. Elegant and understated in form, the translucence of the crystal allows viewers to see the multiple layers and incisions that converge to form endless, flowing movement within its figure. This is how Orlina has managed to turn his sculptures - quintessentially static figures - into self-contained spaces where material, mass, and space enter into intimate
dialogue. The viewer is free to approach the sculpture from any direction to see the ever-changing play of light on the crystal as the pink deepens into purple towards the sides and lightens to near transparency at the center. Under Orlina’s skilled hands, the crystal seems to take on a life of its own, curving in on itself and interacting with the light to cast dancing shadows on the surface and hypnotic layers that lead viewers’ eyes inside and around the sculpture.
