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.
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.
