Artist Statement: Two independently balanced forms dancing together through space, Mariachi Galaxy has a constantly shifting form as it turns about, casting undulating shadows while the orange reflectors twinkle in the light. Its form is aquatic and mystical. Wise searches for the nexus between balance and tipping off, both metaphorically and literally, as this is a place of heightened energy and emotion. He focuses keen attention to the outlines of his sculpture, the elegance and power of edges that transform as one moves around the work and the undulating shadows it throws on the ground and surroundings.
