The Descent

Gil Bruvel's avatar Gil Bruvel

This piece called The Descent was created by artist, Gil Bruvel, and cast in 316L Grade stainless steel. The provocative artist embraces this object of weighty symbolism to expand his Flow series of stainless steel. The Descent celebrates the body as a decorous shell, but Bruvel uses his signature lines of fluid motion to embolden this border between sense and structure. The contoured mapping of natural movements challenge the finality of its deliciously morbid symbolism and we are bound to its fused energy and mystery.
