“Bird’s Nest # 12”

By Lynda Benglis


The brightly colored surfaces of the sculptures evoke the iconic poured works that Lynda Benglis famously made in the late sixties with, at first, Dayglo pigmented latex and then pigmented polyurethane foam. Benglis has shown her ceramic works to great acclaim for more than two decades in significant exhibitions at institutions like the Hepworth Wakefield, UK; New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, NY; and Storm King Art Center, New Windsor, NY; these sculptures join those works on the wall, alongside the artist’s celebrated wax paintings, knotted forms, and pleated metal pieces.
