Picking up the Pieces, 2008
Aluminum, marble, rubber, steel
Discarded man-made materials, such as canisters, flags, and broken bits of furniture, recycled by nature into abstractions of their former selves, are recreated in McCann's sculptural translations. Shapes that allude to a broken window, a fan shaped structure, and the frame of a sink are reproduced in high quality materials and finishes, such as a gold powder coat, aluminum and marble, highlighting the beauty of simple objects.
