Harry Bertoia: Four Decades of Drawings, Jan 2015Go Back
ON VIEW January 16 – April 12, 2015
“Bertoia’s drawings contain elements of both control and chaos, with forms constructed of meticulously drawn lines but also including seemingly random design elements. The subtle use of muted colors in several pieces is intermixed with creations in black ink on paper, including rice paper.
The highlight of the exhibition is an example of Bertoia’s sculpture in “Bush in Winter” from 1972, on loan from the collection Dr. Linda Litton. This stunning creation in bronze of a rounded, barren bush holds the promise of rebirth in the buds tipping the edges of the branches. The visual effect is magnified as light from above creates the intricate shadow to surround the sculpture’s base.” – Joseph & Barrie Ann George for The Sentinel
