Years ago, a friend had two huge pieces of art in transit. Each was on chunky canvas, about two metres square.  I loved them before I even knew what I was looking at.  One featured a crane; yellow, powerful, enormous.  It looked limited, a tight muscle ready to be directed in careful dance.  The other was the red rivet and line detail of treated steel: a new building emerging amidst city shadows.
