AVAILABLE WORKS ONSITE ART TORONTO 2021

Pitch Sets (2017) $450
High calcium limestone and petroleum pitch. Numbered 1-16 based on specific configuration.

Artist Statement:

The constructive role of an ordering of a specific collection of elements.

 

 

First exhibited as part of his 2017 Central Art Garage solo exhibition A Good Perch for a Stretch’, Leonard’s Pitch Sets continue his exploration of possible configurations within a set of parameters.

Each numbered Pitch Set is a sculpture created from eight existing industrial man-made objects whose original purpose was based on it’s inherent breakability and impermanence.

These objects are fragile, and the assigned stacking renders an instability to the sculptures. Leonard imbues the owner with a responsibility to maintain the piece, not only as a precarious object, but to adhere to the assigned rules of assembly.
