Kwade uses large scale sculpture to reflect on time, perception, and scientific inquiry. Powder-coated steel and polished stones create a questionable universe filled with angles, weightlessness and questions. The large scale sculptures seem to have no way of balancing, yet they hold still on rooftops and in galleries, and battle the elements. Within the steel sculptures, there is the possibility of movement through the fanned out spacing, creating a new scientific element.

Part of these works is a careful composition, for the stone is large enough that it is not lost in the steel, and the steel is strong enough to hold the large balls of stone. The other part of the works is the balance between the the materials, ensuring that they are stable in their position, as well as in their individual element.

Time seems to stop still when viewing these artworks, for they themselves are a moment of it. Perception of the world, the universe and science changes for you appear to view another side of it. Science it all at the heart of it.
