This intriguing pure metal artwork by Nicholas Yust is a clear reference to final frontier. The term 'apogee' can be defined as "the point in the orbit of the moon or a satellite at which it is furthest from the earth." The scene depicted in this piece is swirling vortex of grinds applied by hand with careful planetary dots etched in orbit between the twirling waves. The visual whirlpool effect tends to draw the viewer in and capture the attention of the starry-eyed gazer who happens upon its' lovely display. This metallic artwork is more on the representational side than some of the other pieces in Nicholas' Pure Metal Artwork Collection - most of which feature abstract, geometric or purely decorative grind patterns.
The artist designed this metal wall art around a hypnotic, cosmic swirl, with small, circular grinds dotted in the midst of it all - a silvery metallic representation of a solar system. Like most of Nicholas Yust's metal artwork, this is yet another piece that showcases his unbelievable mastery of the handheld, air-powered grinder. An ordinary industrial tool which, in the hands of the master, produces otherworldly results.
Apogee is a spectacular design for a study, planetarium, library, scientist, night club, or any other home, office or hospitality setting that has an appreciation for the heavens and a view of the glorious nights' sky.
