Al Mazrou has created a large-scale public sculpture entitled Scales, 2017. Comprised of stacked layers of ten materials that have traditionally been used throughout art history to make sculpture - the sculpture as history of sculpture practice.
The artist has composed the work within the strict confines of the Fibonacci sequence – the weight of each layer corresponding to the ascending numbers of the pattern. Describing harmony, the sequence governs the intricacies of nature, is the essence of musical scales, and grants a fundamental elegance and balance to architectural design.
The commission was first presented at Abu Dhabi Art.
