This event has ended.

David Benrimon Fine Art presents Steelcuts, an exhibition focused on the revolutionary works Tom Wesselmann began creating in the early 1980s. The exhibition will be held in David Benrimon Fine Art’s new location at the iconic Fuller Building in Manhattan.

This exhibition includes a selection of impressive metal works as well as a variety of media related to their production including paintings, prints and works on paper. “Steelcuts” explores Wesselmann’s pioneering use of industrial technologies to create the new medium of laser-cut wall sculpture.

Wesselmann pared down his subjects to their most basic element, their lines, and laser-cut them from steel. In doing, so he created a fresh experience for the viewer, pulling two-dimensional drawings off the paper and into life, forming three-dimensional works that quite literally “pop” off the wall. Wesselmann reimagined motifs present throughout his oeuvre, creating a wonderful array of nudes, landscapes and still lives.

Wesselmann pushed boundaries in both subject matter and medium, and artistically blurred the difference between drawing and sculpture. Wesselmann once said, “the challenge for an artist is always to find your own way of doing something.” Wesselmann’s innovative fusion of drawing and steel set him apart and created an eternal legacy.
