About “Confidence”: 2022 Grand Bay-Westfield Sculpture by Songul Telek
Varying in forms and themes, my sculptures have the basic compositional elements in common: tension between the units, rhythmical arrangements of masses and a balanced and harmonious overall composition. Here, neat details and crossing lines in horizontally arranged two pieces express a struggle of synchronization of the two gears. Building the confidence between two for unity.
