MC Abstract (2005)

MC Abstract (2005) - abstract sculpture by Linus CoraggioThis sculpture is about the feeling of riding a motorcycle (hence the title). I sought to show spatial volumes that approximate a motorcycle’s proportions of aerodynamic wave vibrations (in an abstract manner).

Inspiration came from Italian Futurism and my personal desire to show the intensity of speed and motion in a static 3-D artwork.

A limited-edition Harley-Davidson folding knife designed by the knifesmith David Mann adds a (literally) edgy aspect to the work.
