Overhand Knot III, 2019’ by Boro selected for Sculpture Now at The Mount, home of Edith Wharton in the Berkshires
“The Overhand Knot III is made of welded steel tubing with a rainbow patina. It is part of my newest collection titled, Knot Series.”
In this series, Boro used sailing knots as his inspiration to explore the harmony between strength and grace. Learning to sail as a teenager taught him the importance of working in unison. Sailors need to tie the right knot in the right place to navigate stormy seas. Their symmetry and beauty belies their strength. That duality creates a powerful uniformity of purpose. Boro believes the intricate interwoven strands of these knot sculptures can help us understand our commonality and the advantages of togetherness. Unlike the tautness of sailors’ knots, the voids floating between the strands recognize that we still need space to expand and thrive.
