Paul Vexler: Ribbons
Seattle sculptor Paul Vexler has created an undulating ribbon of wood more than forty feet in length for a dynamic site-specific installation at BAM. The sculpture gracefully floats, suspended from the vaulted ceiling of BAM’s Sculpture Court. Vexler fabricates his sculptures from reclaimed and recycled plywood. He strives to define forms and volumes with as little material as possible, while providing just the right strength and pliability to give the sculpture a sense of movement and play. A master of the dynamics of wood, Vexler has also created smaller-scale sculptures to be presented for the first time with this installation.
Organized by the Boise Art Museum
