> DESCRIPTION

Renowned for creating large-scale, often monumental sculpture from cedar beams which she painstakingly cuts, assembles, glues, clamps, and laminates, finally rubbing powered graphite into the work's textured, faced surfaces. Her signature shapes are abstract, with references to things from the real world. Drawing on a range of sources, from the humble to the majestic, von Rydingsvard's work is recognized for its great psychological force and powerful physical presence.
