Similar to the way Silver personalises his plinths to create narrative environments for his sculptures, Untitled is given character and purpose through its ‘wardrobe’. Made from onyx and steel garbed in fabric, Silver’s Untitled stands as a kind of ‘sculpture incognito’: it wears its assembled parts like a costume. Untitled is an abstract composition in its own right, however, its formal qualities are emulated by the suggestion of role, plot, or story. Its geometrical base of polished steel conveys all the mysticism of an ancient obelisk and the utopian future-monuments of modernism. Capped with a meteoric mass of onyx and sporting a rather fetching poncho, its design elegance is comically transformed into a character from another time.
