Arik Levy (born 1962) is an artist, technician, photographer, designer and filmmaker. Levy’s skills are multi-disciplinary and his work can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Best known publicly for his sculptures – such as his signature Rock pieces – his installations, limited editions and design, Levy nevertheless feels that “the world is about people, not objects”.
Not from the Stone Age but closer to Kryptonite, Crystal Rock appears in the cave of the future as an ambassador of the fusion between nature and man, light and reflection, transparency and mass.
All these characteristics are gathered within a perfectly cut, yet roughly sculpted contemporary silex that interacts between light and darkness, suspended in the air like a frozen shooting star. It‘s as if the world stood still at the very moment you gaze upon it, the multiple reflections and deflections fascinating during the day and even more dynamic at night, when lighted. Crystal Rock‘s LED source highlights the artistic glassmaking process and advanced gluing techniques, gleaming on its inner curved surfaces and defining form on cut facets.
Its every angle unique, this Kryptonite rain in single or multiple combinations, exhibits a new spacial dimension in the air, as if gravity had just skipped this location…and perhaps, if you turn you head for a moment, you might see an elf.
