LOUISE NEVELSON "NIGHT RHYTHM III" SCULPTURE, 1968
Her work has had an undeniable influence on a host of artists including Tony Cragg and Louise Bourgeois.
Over the last few years, there has been tremendous momentum in the renewed interest and appreciation of her work. More and more public collections are re-installing her works from their permanent collections (the Whitney in New York City, the AGO in Toronto and the Pérez Art Museum in Miami are notable examples)
Like the best of Nevelson's work "Rhythm III" alludes to tribal art, cubism, and utopian or post-apocalyptic architecture. Nevelson's favorite medium to work with was wood and her favorite color was a matte-black. This work is emblematic of Nevelson's artistic vision and groundbreaking aesthetic. Going beyond visual intrigue, this sculpture incorporates kinetic movement as the 4 front panels slide back to reveal hidden designs beneath them. This work is notable for its refined and mysterious details.
At the time of this sculpture's creation, Louise Nevelson was at the apex of her career. In 1967, Nevelson received a major career retrospective at the Whitney Museum. Following the much-lauded exhibition, Nevelson took part in group exhibitions of sculptors at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Los Angeles Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and MoMA.
