While minimalism was the predominant style of his generation, Perlman chose to push his forms into ever-more-complicated, gravity defying configurations. Raw metal forms revolve in space; circular shapes propel forward like runaway locomtive wheels; giant metal shards spiral upward like a twister hitting a scrapyeard.
