from the IMA flickr page:
In its reductive abstract vocabulary, Whole responds to the legacy of Minimalist art, and particularly the muscular abstractions of artists such as Richard Serra. Yet by using pliable rope to weave these monolithic forms, Genger also draws on the Post-Minimalist legacy of artists such as Eva Hesse and Lynda Benglis. Genger’s sculpture embodies an elemental tension between obdurate mass and empty space, between hard-edge geometry and organic softness.
