Space Junction of Energy
Jerald Jacquard
Painted steel, mixed media
1970, CTA Art Collection

Jerald Jacquard’s sculpture, Space Junction of Energy, is a paradox; an abstract sculpture that describes the specific event of mass passing through space. The artist’s intention is to energize the viewer’s mind through perception of the ever-shifting composition of geometric forms. Formal yet animated, the sculpture is an arrangement of hollow geometric shapes constructed of cut and welded sheet steel. A visual blanket of orange paint unifies the variable components and emphasizes the internal balance and harmony of this dynamic composition.
