Lynda Benglis, “HILLS AND CLOUDS” (2014), cast polyurethane with phosphorescence and stainless steel

In the 11-foot-tall sculpture “HILLS AND CLOUDS” (2014), cast polyurethane rises up off the ground, dripping down the sides of stainless steel support beams. Smaller works of the same nature surround the centerpiece, like satellites or clouds. Protruding from the wall, the smaller works are intrinsically linked in their shape to the physical gestures that created them. Almost spectrally, the artist’s body is omnipresent in the space surrounding the work, effectively activating the environment in which the works are exhibited — like an energy grid, its currents flowing and jumping from one satellite sculpture to the next, providing the centerpiece with the momentum to grow upwards.
