In Helisphere Charles Hadcock has combined the characteristics of the sphere with that of the helix – a curve in three-dimensional space. The sphere is made in horizontal sections, which spin out of alignment with its skin, causing a curved and stepped distortion that is the helix curve. Walking around the sculpture provides the viewer with a multiplicity of gently changing shapes. Both Helisphere and Torsion II, another of Hadcock’s sculptures in the permanent collection, were first shown here as part of his temporary exhibition in Jubilee Park in Spring 2011.
