Moroles creates abstract sculptures that change with the season and light of day. At 25 feet tall and 31 feet wide, Square Spiral Arch features spiraling lines of texture that radiate out like fingers of energy, reminiscent of a sunset. A polished rectangular path cuts through the center of the arch. This circle and square motif represents heaven and earth, respectively, and reflects the artist’s work and travels in Asia.
