The concept of infinite space was a common motif for Escher, who often used geometric forms fading into the distance in some of his most famous works. Cubic Space Division, like so many of his creations, presents a challenge to one's visual perception. The 3-dimensional space is divided by a cubic lattice of uniform cubes connected by rectangular bars in a pattern repeated over and over again.
Escher's creation in Cubic Space Division evokes a sense of boundlessness in a finite space, and his mathematical approach makes it visually credible. Zadora imparts the same level of mathematical precision in his large-scale version of the work. This monumental steel sculpture has been intricately assembled and powder coated in a dark hue to suggest the drama of the original lithograph. The result is an impressive work of depth and subtly that appropriately pays homage to Escher's original design.
The Canadian-born sculptor Baron Andreas von Zadora-Gerlof is recognized as the world's leading gemstone artist, and his international clientele includes the world's most discerning connoisseurs.
