Lobby Artwork Wows From Near and Far

Installed in the lobby of the KPMB-designed Bay Adelaide Centre’s East Tower, Micah Lexier’s Two Circles sculptures – one black, and the other white and outlined in black – initially impress because of their stark simplicity and monolithic size. But upon closer inspection, the works reveal their true complexity. Each one is made up of thousands of ceramic sticks fabricated by the mosaic pros at Mosaika and snapped into two pieces before being hand-laid into the artwork. The result is a thoughtful reminder that broken and whole can be two sides of the same coin.
