Daniel Arsham's Stratified Three Graces is inspired by a marble version of the sculpture in the collection of the Met Museum in New York, which Arsham studied during his time at Cooper Union. The three graces represent: Aglaia (Beauty), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Abundance). The original work is from 2nd Century CE Rome and references earlier classical depictions of these images from the Greeks. An avid student of art history and the deeper understanding of archaeology, Arsham takes a sculpture which has already experienced some evolution and transformation through time and further questions this evolution, introducing three materials. Sharing a photo of the work from the Met below. The artwork is the part of a new series of sculptures by Arsham, where he unites three materials: wood, bronze and polished stainless steel. The two metals have different heating and cooling temperatures, so it is quite an alchemic process to have the works fabricated and unified among the three materials.
