Quandary Resolution 5419
ruck, swage, mimesis, skosh
"Celesto's cool and serene composition in sheet metal, 'Mimesis of Sea and Sky,' evokes the seamless unity of the elements," one critic wrote, "and as the artist intended, the sculpture reveals not a skosh of its origins in the forge; of the Oxyacetylene torches which heated the reluctant metal; of the swages which bent its broad expanses; of the helve hammers which formed its rucks and ripples; of the sculptor who sweated and heaved."
