Lakeland, Florida Plenum Orb

 

 

48" diameter. Stainless steel object assemblage. 2014

 

"Gialanella’s 'Plenum Orb' is an assemblage of diverse stainless steel objects including everything from kitchen paraphernalia to hubcaps. The objects, artfully arranged, become a perfect sphere, tightly bound but seamless in the uniformity of its surface. Walking around the piece becomes a journey – is that a tea kettle? – with a whimsical sense of discovery."

~ Holly Keris, chief curator, Cummer Museum in Jacksonville FL.
