Passacaglia was completed by the L.A. artist Ann Preston in 2007. The sculpture's name derives from a musical form related to dance. Like its name, the sculpture is composed of geometric forms- a dance of triangles that combine to become diamonds, transforming yet again into larger geometric units which expand into a counter rythm of contoured panels.
