Tony Smith, 1975
Tony Smith’s white marble sculpture, Fermi, is an homage to Enrico Fermi, the Nobel Prize-winning Italian physicist who brilliantly investigated quantum theory and atomic structure. Smith asks us to consider the complex structure of things while giving us a handsome form that also can be appreciated for its uncomplicated elegance.
Tony Smith is another architect who turned to sculptural projects using his knowledge of mathematics and geometry, design and natural sciences to produce wonderful works in Carrara marble. This artist’s works are widely displayed in major collections including the National Gallery of Art in Washington.
