Dee Briggs, 6 Plates, 5' x 10' x .5

Dee Briggs, Dee Briggs in Foley Square

April 11, 2016 to March 31, 2017
Thomas Paine Park, Manhattan

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.

Description:

Dee Briggs’ three new sculptures for Dee Briggs in Foley Square directly address her fascination with geometry and the particular operation of symmetry called chirality or three-dimensional handedness. Chirality is defined by a three dimensional entity that has no internal plane of symmetry along the x, y or z-axis.

Briggs states that her work “grows out of mathematics and architecture – geometry, symmetry and rhythm – line, plane and volume – visual perception and spatial understanding. They are three-dimensional patterns that are at once familiar and foreign. Heavy forms that imply weightlessness creating a tempting and engaging spatial experience.”
