POLE SERIES
2011

Deeply sensitive to the cycles of the moon, Joe Jbeily has always sought out new ways of channeling his creativity. A few days after the crash of the supersonic Concordejet, he came across an impressive, imposing and eminently masculine piece of cedar wood in his beloved Carling forest. Pointing skyward, it boldly and unequivocally claimed its right to life – a life that flows free and refuses to be tamed. The artist was immediately reminded of the winged marvel of innovation that transcended the barrier of time with unprecedented power and that was sent plummeting to the ground by nothing more than a tiny chunk of metal. This work blends the natural beauty of wood and the sleek efficiency of metal – an unlikely combination, a unique compilation. The unconquered spirit of the Concorde.
