 Artist: Bayasgalan Batmagnai

‘“The piece is a complex study evoking in the viewer a powerful physical and emotional response profoundly capturing a transitory expression of ‘desirability and resignation’…..With the rocky spire I wanted to show how one’s opinions and principles are being challenged by the decisions made throughout my entire life. In this composition vertical and horizontal elements represent the contrast of these differing viewpoints”.

The piece was cast by the AB Fine Art Foundry
