Sheldon Acquisition TrustBreach by Roxy Paine Roxy PaineWhile Breach is naturalistic in form, like other works by this artist, it asks us to consider what is natural and what is artificial in our environment. Nestled among other trees, Breach stands apart since it is made of stainless steel. However, the garden in which it is placed likewise is the result of human intervention, and thus also contrived.
