About the work :

Counterpart II is an artwork by the English artist: Tom Price. This artwork is available on commission. It will be created on the same basis as shown in the images and under the same conditions. Each piece is unique due to the creative process used.

Tom Price's artistic approach revolves around materials and is mainly led by innovative and experimental creative processes. The artist thinks of himself “as working in collaboration with materials, processes and phenomena, and that the final physical outcome is a product of mutual consent.

One of the artist’s favourite mediums is coal. The artist admires its aesthetic characteristics, in particular its darkness and opacity, as well as its intrinsic and functional aspects. Coal is indeed one of the purest forms of carbon, the basic element of all known forms of life as well as a very important energy source for humans. Thanks to learning through experimentation, Tom Price developed a firm mastery in this medium and now produces a wide variety of artwork with it. 

In the Synthesis series, Tom Price forces resin and tar to live in the same space, experimenting with the chemical reactions through heating materials and catalysis process. As the tar fragments inserted into the resin blocks widen, they develop fissures, voids and cracks, modifying the original appearance, colour and characteristics of the resin. A new element is now created by the synthesis of the two. Although the creative process is begun and managed by the artist, the chemical reactions are not fully controlled and the end result is unique each time, exceeding the limits of his imagination. The works of the Synthesis series are pieces of surprising beauty, intriguing and mysterious, drawing in the viewer’s admiration of the detail’s forms, the subtle colour nuances and the changing light reflections.This powerful visual impact is highlighted in some artworks, as in this case, by LED lights (via cable).

Counterpart II is one of Tom Price's 'hybrid' artworks sitting halfway between art and design: the piece can be seen exclusively as a sculpture or can also serve as a bench. In this artwork, dark and opaque coal is put into relation and opposition with crystalline and translucent resin. However, unlike the Counterpart artwork piece, the contrast of the two materials is presented here within the same element, thus becoming much stronger. Tom Price alludes to carbon’s transformative power, which depending on its molecular structure and level of purity can take on completely different shapes and colours, from graphite or coal to diamond.

The dimensions include the base of the sculpture and they are customizable, please contact us for a quote.
