Royden Rabinowitch has said that his drawings and sculptural works are “a kind of choreography for the eyes and the body respectively.” His reputation as one of the most important sculptors of our time spread internationally from Canada in the 1960s.
His ‘Barrel Constructions’ are linked to the writings of James Joyce, and the artist correlates the works to the fractured narrative of ‘Ulysses’ in particular. The whole of the barrel is broken into parts and then re-assembled, balance being tantamount to the success of the finished construction.
