“Aria,” by Kathleen Caricof, is composed of two carved black-brown basalt stones separated by a panel of cor-ten steel and complemented with bold colored patina steel accents. The sculpture stands approximately 8 feet high and 3 ½ feet wide and is placed atop a black granite platform. A surrounding fountain provides a dramatic effect to the sculpture and a calming water movement to the piece.

“Aria” was commissioned for the Aria Luxury Apartment Homes by the property owner and developer, The Picerne Group.

Caricof is a member of the National Sculptor’s Guild and was commissioned by the City of Cerritos to create the Cerritos Air Disaster Memorial that is displayed in the Cerritos Sculpture Garden. She also sculpted “Balance,” an art piece installed at the northeast corner of South Street and Carmenita Road in the City of Cerritos. Based in Costa Mesa, California, Caricof is known for creating soft-curved contemporary works of art using various types of stone and metals.
