julia mangold: waxed steel, recumbent and erect

julia mangold: waxed steel wall and floor sculptures, 1994 - 2002

at a time of universal distraction and overexposure to images julia mangold's uncompromising work is a source of intellectual strength. her objects are of an almost classical beauty due to their proportions and surface. massive in their substance they are nevertheless seemingly remote. in their reduction, their purity, their equanimity and their sensuous, emotional aura the sculptures offer an experience of extraordinary perception.

Those black steel wall and floor sculptures are chic. I’ve seen a lot of floor sculpture but these are the best because of its simplicity and the shade of its color.
