Jene Highstein: Space and Place

Jene Highstein: Space and Place presents the artist’s seminal sculptures as well as works on paper from the 1970s through the 1990s. A key figure of sculptural abstraction, Highstein used bronze, concrete, steel and wood to create primal and organic forms. His quasi-manufactured sculptures create a dialogue between raw materials and biomorphism, stressing the importance of the object’s presence within a surrounding space and its impact on the viewer. The solidity of Highstein’s sculptures complement the delicacy of his works on paper. His drawings of intense bone black pigment and Chinese ink function as maquettes for the sculptural forms and clearly map the evolution of his sculptural abstraction.
