Description: "Indeterminate Line" is a large, elegant twenty-ton scribble depicting an oval that's been rendered organic and geometric at the same time. Venet, who was born in France, has lived for decades in New York, and his work has been installed throughout Europe and the United States. The sculpture was manufactured in Hungary, out of Cor-ten steel, where it was cut in pieces, shipped to Denver and reassembled. The artwork was sand-blasted and coated with a light acid, to promote a natural rusted patina.
