With simple aluminium profiles, Sopolemalama Filipe Tohi conjures up a feast for the eyes: as you move closer and move around the sculpture, there is a wonderful illusion of movement, created by the varying perspective, enhanced by the shiny metal and the positioning in the reflective pond outside the gallery.

Sopolemalama Filipe Tohi is a sculptor of Tongan origin living in New Zealand. We have shown some of his work on this blog before.
