Untitled - Cadmium Orange Rocket

Painted Stainless Steel.
1600mm x 450mm x 450mm

 Strong, playful and immaculate. An admiration for the aerodynamic aesthetic purity and formal beauty of the grand slam bombs and rockets designed by Barnes Wallace during World War II inspired McCracken to create these striking sculptures.

Commonly associated with war, power and fear, the artist lightens these 'heavy' objects by creating them to resemble inflatable toys.
