Nevelson: How Parts Make the Whole

If you study metaphysics you’ll see that we can get out of ourselves. And maybe there is a bit of danger – so what? You have to have the courage to try it. What would you do with life if you didn’t risk it?”

- Louise Nevelson

Louise Nevelson (1899-1988)

ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST SCULPTOR of monumental, monochromatic, wall pieces and outdoor sculptures. Her wood collages can be described as a process starting with singular objects turning them into complex parts, which collectively create the whole experience. This echoes how individual letters create words.

Certainly as a woman sculptor I feel connected to Louise, but I was thrilled when I realized she also studied metaphysics. I admire her strength and determination to begin again and again to achieve her goal of following her soul’s heart desire.
