Much of the beauty of Saret’s sculptures derives from his sensitivity to the physical properties of the materials he uses. In the case of Autumn Cumulus, he wove together individual strands of copper wire to create a tangled web that abounds with organic associations. Responsive to minute changes in the environment, this loose, open network of wires gives a sense of volume but not mass, while simultaneously delineating the space around it in much the same way a drawing articulates space on a piece of paper.
