Sculpture

Ursula von Rydingsvard

  • April 21, 2012 - August 05, 2012

Summary of Exhibition

Von Rydingsvard is renowned for creating large-scale, often monumental sculpture from cedar beams which she painstakingly cuts, assembles, glues, clamps and laminates, finally rubbing powered graphite into the work’s textured surfaces.

Further Information about the Exhibition

Her signature shapes are abstract, with references to things from the real world.  Drawing on a range of sources, from the humble to the majestic, von Rydingsvard’s work is recognized for its great psychological force and powerful physical presence.

The exhibition was recently honored with the U.S. section of the International Association of Art Critics' annual award for Best Show in a Non-Profit Gallery or Space for its premiere at the SculptureCenter, NY.
