Andrew Sabin makes large-scale monumental works mainly out of galvanised steel mesh and strips. Although industrial and heavy Sabin skillfully makes work that appears light and weightless through the construction of space that is at once open and closed. Interconnecting spaces are constructed by weaving free forms through a rectilinear grid, creating a complex space of interior and exterior. His works deliberately imbue visitors with a sense of insecurity and precariousness, adding confusion of balance and perception.
