Renee Balfour: Nature Unbound Through April 3rd at Amy Kaslow Gallery

In the Galleries

Sculptures as statements of architecture’s past and present

Review by Mark Jenkins

                                                    Detail of Her Dream, Cherry, 51” x 12”


A painter turned woodworker, Renee Balfour makes sculptures that emulate natural forms, not architectural ones. That doesn’t mean that the 11 pieces in “Nature Unbound,” her Amy Kaslow Gallery show, are rough and craggy. The sinuous shapes are artfully shaped and smoothly polished, and fitted together in ways that emphasize the artist’s control over her material. 



Read the review in the Washington Post

Earlier this month at Amy Kaslow Gallery, Renee Balfour spoke to a full house about her process. She detailed how she selects the wood, her sculpting technique, and shared insights into her work. Watch the recording to learn more about the artist and Nature Unbound.
