Beverly Pepper (1922-2020), was an acclaimed American artist that paved the way for younger generations of female artists in the male dominated field of sculpture. Pepper’s sculptures are known for their monumental scale made from iron, steel, earth and stone. Her work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Brooklyn Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum, among others. The sculptures in this presentation represent some of the earliest works in Pepper’s sixty-year long career. Her ability to transform stark and heavy materials into weightless delicate objects is unmatched. This unique series allows the viewer a look into how Pepper developed her signature transformations. Pepper had enough control of the material to “draw” with it in space, to treat ribbons of metal as though they were lyrical strokes from a brush. Pepper has explained, “My work both responds to and tries to reinforce our capacity for wonder, for reorienting ourselves in relation to powers or fields of force (whether internal or external), which are greater than our merely biographical or social selves.”
