“Tide” An extraordinarily complex sculpture to make, but highly successful in fusing spontaneity and calculation. The light refracts across the acrylic finish, giving enhanced dimensionality to the shapes. Walking around this piece gives the eye an amazing rhythm to follow: the interior and exterior space engages from every angle. In these fractured times, Volk’s “tide” reminds us that we are all “tied”. An artist who has been restlessly inventive over decades, Volk’s work really is demanding of greater recognition and a wider audience.
