Shadow Study

Ancient art critics moved around a sculpture on a dark night with a single candle and observed the movement and play of shadows to determine the quality of that sculpture.

Inspired by this older concept, Soderberg sculpted the profile head in shadow of a man wearing a Greek fishermen hat. The shadowed image appears on the wall when a single light is placed to the upper right shining down on the bronze.
