Carolyn Enz Hack

Sculptor Carolyn Enz Hack used a variety of media to create Crosscurrents, including copper, steel, mica, and Swarovski crystals. She says the piece is “inspired by the way that water moves through a landscape… All experience of the world is sifted through the lens of time. My work, at a basic level, is about our relationship to space and time, how we experience the environment through our senses and in memory. There’s a saying that you can’t jump into the same river twice, because time brings a different river every second. Crosscurrents is my attempt to hold that river still, if only for a few moments.”
