Candle Grid – Héctor Esrawe

 

A series of architectural and sculptural structures in diverse formats and proportions, built from a continous metal grid (brass or iron), in which each element offers the possibility to hold one or more candles. As the wax melts, it fills the metal lattice forming an organic, random and dramatic expression that builds up over time and accumulates into an ephemeral presence, creating a living changing piece that evolves and transforms.

“Candle Grid” was presented at the latest exhibition of Masa Galería 2020 “Recover/Uncover” in Mexico City.
