Sculpture Exhibit

The DeYoung has some work by Ruth Asawa exhibited through January 28th.
Here is how her web site describes the work: "These sculptures are made from iron, copper, brass and other types of wire. Asawa considers these sculptures three-dimensional drawings. Instead of the lines moving across the paper, the lines move through three-dimensional space. “I was interested in it because of the economy of a line, making something in space, enclosing it without blocking it out. It’s still transparent. I realized that if I was going to make these forms, which interlock and interweave, it can only be done with a line because a line can go anywhere.” If you could see these sculptures in person, you could view them at different angles and observe how they continuously change depending on your viewing angle. "

They are amazing. If you want to take a moment away this holiday season, I recommend a trip.
