Dreyfuss’s piece “Merlin – evoking Brancusi’s “Bird in Flight” – is placed in the stairway leading from the more public studio space, rented out for parties, and the rest of the house. This encourages interaction between the guests, the space, and the work. “Our main job,” Dreyfuss says, “is to have a building where the events bring life to it.” Dreyfuss’s art dealer, George Hemphill, calls “Merlin” a “play between balance and symmetry, and between image and historical allusion.”
