Sculpture: cut aluminum

Date: 1995

This work by sculptor Martin Johnson was made specifically for the Vogels. In an inscription on the back of the piece, the artist explains that it can be hung in three orientations. If hung in one vertical manner it is an image of a flower. In the opposite direction, it becomes a face. Turned in its horizontal orientation, it spells the word “for,” making its gift status literally inherent to the work.
