Connected and Disconnected: The Sculpture of Hanneke Beaumont - Exhibit
The enigmatic figures of the Dutch sculptor Hanneke Beaumont have captured widespread critical acclaim for both their carefully rendered, highly visceral surfaces as well as the mood of thoughtfulness and introspection frequently suggested. Beaumont’s figures represent a universal type, neither tellingly male nor female, that are carefully and pensively posed. Characteristically, Beaumont initially works in clay and then frequently translates the form into bronze or iron—all of which will be represented in the exhibition. In addition, several of the artist’s companion drawings will be on display. For additional exhibit information, call (888) 957-1580.
