Ursula Von Rydingsvard: The Contour of Feeling
Celebrated as one of the most influential sculptors working today, Ursula von Rydingsvard is best known for her monumental works and signature use of cedar wood. Her sculptures’ abstract shapes reference the mark of the human hand—evidence of the artist’s meticulous process of cutting, shaping, and assembling her works from thousands of cedar blocks—while simultaneously evoking the grandeur and power of nature.
Guest curated by Mark Rosenthal, Ursula von Rydingsvard: The Contour of Feeling focuses on von Rydingsvard’s artistic development since 2000 and her continued commitment to experimentation throughout her career. Recent works and a selection of early sculptures will provide insight into the artist’s longstanding material and thematic interests. Featuring approximately 20 works—over half of which are large-scale—the exhibition includes many sculptures never before exhibited in the United States.
