Sliding Ladder by Nike Savvas

View all 9 Photos

Snap, snap, snap, snap…five, six, seven, eight. Presenting a mathematic beat featuring threads bound into beautiful bursts by Nike Savvas. A collaboration of wooden outlined hexagons create a unique take on the soccer ball pleasing in pink, yellow, teal, and other shades from the Caribbean skyline.Various skeletons offer new formulas, fanning out colors to chase each other down tunnels and cylinders inspiring captivating sculptures. It’s a hypnotizing art, leading an audience into many emotions.

“Sliding Ladder consumes the gallery as a maze of laser thin beams; eight force fields deep, each expansive panel supports a kaleidoscopic candy coloured mesh, ordered as a receding chromatic tunnel, ever beaconing, entrancing, to a hypnotic mandala supernova, an all-seeing talismanic evil-eye. Simultaneously architecture and pure light, geometric and organic, bending time, space, and sensation in its illusory web, Sliding Ladder encompasses, transports the viewer in its trippy new age vortex. A physical manifestation of hyper-space, or the refracted baptismal rays of some divine power mapped out in diagrammatical science, the effect is alluvial, virtual and sublime, like entering a lustrous future-temple of immaculate aura. It’s an experience of space-age hippie nirvana or rapturous science fiction epiphany, as evasive as in dreams, palpably measured out in finite contours, in lengths of … wait for it … wool. Welcome to the world of Nike Savvas, where magic’s made real, and chintz is triumphant, and the celestial, extraordinary, otherworldly are … um … common.”
