Nohra Haime Gallery
From Stone to Foam
The exhibition traces some of the different approaches and materials used in sculpture in the last fifty years. It will display dimensional works from over two-dozen artists, ranging in style from stone sculptors Ulrich Ruckriem and Lika Mutal to colorful classics by Jean Dubuffet, Alexander Calder, Sophia Vari, Roy Lichtenstein and Niki de Saint-Phalle. Cindy Sherman’s 1990 tureen Madame de Pompadour, Javier Marin’s grandiose terracotta figures, Rebecca Horn’s box construction Herman Melville, "Moby Dick," a copper flowerpot by Nicola Bolla, further elaborate the inventiveness in sculpture.

Among the wall pieces are rubber, plastic and bronze wall sculptures that create a veritable portrait gallery of dark, otherworldly creatures from Carol K. Brown’s Album Series, a hanging rug in painted foam, representing a garden by Piero Gilardi, a copper poem figure by Leslie Dill. Squares, where unlikely substances like copper, glass and wax are paired to startling, luscious effects by Susana Jaime-Mena; a colorful construction by Carole Sebororovski, and a gap shorts in silver by Donald Lipsky.
Mixing bronze and stone to make the materials flow are Bryan Hunt and John Van Alstine. Lalanne’s stone fountain. A T-shaped sculpture of gourds by Maria Fernanda Cardoso, a palette soaked in plastic pieces by Tony Cragg. The human figure has not lost its place, from a Henry Moore reclining nude to Fernando Botero’s sensuous forms, to Isabel de Obaldia’s glass sculptures. And we could not leave out Kinetic sculptors George Rickey, Harry Bertoia and Pedro De Movellan.
