GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is honored to feature the provocative work of Dutch sculptor, Hanneke Beaumont in the winter exhibition, Connected and Disconnected: The Sculpture of Hanneke Beaumont, which opens to the public February 1. This retrospective features Beaumonts impressive fluency with materials as well as her command of the human figure, and will remain on display until April 28.
In her first major museum exhibition in the United States, Beaumonts work in terra cotta, bronze, iron as well as a select group of large-scale drawings will be on display. Celebrated for her figurative work, each piece is carefully rendered with textured surfaces often encouraging thoughtfulness and introspection. Representing a universal type, Beaumonts figures are neither tellingly male nor female.
As a figurative artist, Beaumont has created a figurative type utilizing techniques that combine to suggest psychological penetration, said Joseph Becherer, Vice President and Chief Curator of Sculpture. Additionally, the portrayed mood of her evocative works are moving and memorable."
