Empty Hand and Full Hand consist of framed blocks of wood which hold small boxes or blocks arranged in the shape of a hand. Like many of the works shown in this room, the cellular structure of the hands relates to Neagu’s interest in the human body as a microcosmic model for larger systems.

The hand as a symbol appears in several of Neagu’s works, notably in a series of drawings called 36 Possibilities Realised Simultaneously.
