Wood Sculpture, 1957-1967
and Recent Photographs
May 5-June 4, 2011
As always, Mary starts with observation and moves towards myth.
– Hayden Herrera
DC Moore’s new exhibition of Mary Frank’s work, Transformations: Wood Sculpture, 1957-1967 and Recent Photographs, features her dynamic wood sculptures, direct carvings from the 1950s and 60s that marked her emergence as one of the most innovative artists on the New York art scene. The exhibition also presents drawings from the same time, vibrant figures that both complement her sculpture and expand the range of her explorations of space, motion, and the rhythms of the human body. This is the first exhibition of these seminal works since they were originally shown over forty years ago. VIEW FULL PRESS RELEASE.
