Series 5

1987-89 | The seventeen works that make up Series 5 have little in common with the brooding pieces that preceded them. Made from shiny stainless steel rather than dark COR-TEN plate, they are significantly smaller than anything Rubinoff had made since the early 1970s. And while they are also composed from pseudo-mechanical forms, here the arrangements of cogs and shafts are not so much ossified into ominous ruins as frozen in delightful motion. This joyously musical series uses counterpoint to balance pairs of elements in space, and introduces for the first time the cast sphere, around which all of the compositions are based.
