HAS ANYONE EVER HEARD OF LEE BONTECOU?

Post by Surrealist » Wed Mar 14, 2007 2:00 pm

I saw some of Lee Bontecou's art in a modern art exhibit a while ago...
She does these sort of weird sculptures (with wire and canvas, I think) of Holes and indescribable things that are far more interesting than I'm making them sound...

Try to image-google her art to see what I mean...
Here's one...

I think I saw her stuff at the MCA once. I thought it was wierd, but interesting.

I love her stuff; the piece above is either at the Avery Fisher Hall (the place where the NY Philharmonic orchestra plays) or one of the buildings right around it (that plaza with the Julliard school); I'm pretty sure I saw it there when I was in New York. It's actually really huge, and nice and ominous.
