The game of chess involves a patterned push and pull of decisions and plays on the checkered board; the Pandov Chess Set expresses this tension in a dynamic way though the sculptural treatment of the contemporary pieces. Lucian Popescu's 3D-printed figurines come to resemble both human and inanimate forms with distinctive silhouettes on either side.
The bits within the white collection have a lightness about them, especially evident in the look of the king and queen. Their slender forms wear flaring robes, while their dark opponents remain top-heavy. While the light ones lift, the black ones sink. There is a beautiful challenging balance that occurs physically between the rival armies of the Pandov Chess Set that elegantly expresses the nature of the logic game.
