    Beverly Pepper in Sculpture Magazine  

    Sculpture Magazine's Judith Hoos Fox interviews the renowned sculptor Beverly Pepper in the article, "Space is a Living Thing." The interview, in the September issue of the magazine, coincides with the annoucement that Pepper will be honored with the International Sculpture Center's 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award alongside Nancy Holt.

    Below, is an excerpt from the interview of Pepper speaking about the interplay of the opposing forces of geomerty and organic form in her work:

    "Opposing forces are integral to any serious work of art, especially when using organic forms within geometric ones or vice-versa. These opposing forces give a dynamic to the work, with an internal dialogue. They are so integral to our lives spent immersed in urban landscapes where geometry dominates, just as they respond to tensions between experiential material and abstraction or conceptial thought, between extremes such as chaos and order, change and regime. As a maker, of course, my energies flow from and toward forces that exceed any imposed system analysis. And always, these forces are inseparable from the materials themselves- stone, iron, grass, trees, the contours of a geological stratum."

    George Rickey Sculptures on the Terrace at Marlborough Gallery 

    George Rickey is internationally regarded as among the most inventive and influential sculptors of the twentieth century. His iconic kinetic works were the outgrowth of experiments with wire and metal that began during his service in World War II. By the late 1950s and 1960s he reduced sculptural forms to simple, geometric shapes such as rectangles, trapezoids, cubes, and lines and largely limited his materials to stainless steel, creating a body of work that is a mesmerizing combination of minimalism and movement.

    Diane Tuft at the Southampton Center 

    Jul 12 2013 - Aug 04 2013

    "The Artic 2001-2008," an exhibition of Diane Tuft's stunning photographs of the effects of infared and ultraviolet light on the natural landscapes of Greenland and Iceland, will be on view at the Southampton Center in Southampton, New York from July 12- August 4, 2013.

    Tuft's photographs document the effects of high levels of these light spectrums, usually found in places suffering from ozone depletion. On view is a selection of photographs taken in 2007 of the icebergs in Greenland's Disko Bay: the color photographs record the colors of the ultraviolet light being reflected off the surface of the icebergs; the black-and-white photographs, taken with infared film, records the amount of resulting heat or infared light being reflected off the surfaces of the same icebergs. The other photographs on view, of glaciers in Iceland taken from 2001 to 2008, illustrate the effects of ultraviolet light on this landscape over time: the icebergs appear dramatically diminished in size in the later photographs.

    The exhibition opens with a cocktail reception on July 12 from 6-8pm, followed by a screening of the award-winning documentary Chasing Ice at 8:30pm. More information on the exhibition can be found here. Additional information on the artist and her work can be found here.
