Del Amo Wheel

Colin Gray created a cast-stone wheel nine feet in diameter that stands upright in the center of the station platform. The artist was struck upon visiting the public art site “how everything as far as the eye could see was industrially made, practical and plain.” The artist set out to produce something in direct contrast to those elements and this ornate wheel was created. The artist stated the art work was “born out of the desire to balance what is there with something handmade rather than industrially made, ornate rather than plain, ceremonial rather than practical, and still rather than moving.”
