This event has ended.

Since the late 1960s, Jackie Winsor has been making sculpture that expands a Minimalist vocabulary of simple geometric forms, using unrefined materials and grids to investigate ideas about process and labor. Working by hand and spending years on some pieces, Winsor produces intimate, tactile sculptures that call attention to a complex relationship between interior and exterior. Her early pieces included columns of coiled rope and bound wood trunks. Later, she began to work with burnt, dragged or exploded cubes of wood and cement. In the 1980s, her work turned to polished cement spheres and mirrored cubes with apertures that allowed the eye to peer inside and find finely crafted and colored interiors. This interplay between surface and interior prompts a psychological or emotional suggestion in her work.

The works on view will span Winsor’s career, from a late 1960s rope piece to the most recent wall insets (2000-2001).
