Description

Throughout her five-decades-long career, Lynda Benglis has created sculptures in a wide range of materials that explore the physicality of form and its effects on the viewer. For her exhibition at the Nasher, Benglis highlights three bodies of work in media as diverse as traditional bronze and decorative glitter. In the Garden, Benglis will make use of the water features by installing recently-created monumental fountains. Beginning in the 1960s with her poured latex paintings, for which the artist dripped and poured pigmented latex directly onto the floor, Benglis has been concerned with reconciling states of liquidity and solidity. Installed inside the Nasher, bronze enlargements of ceramic sculptures represent the importance of metal casting in Benglis's practice - something she has engaged in since the early 1970s, while several works from her series demonstrate the artist's commitment to surface ornamentation and engagement with issues of artistic taste and value.
