The lateral vision of Louise Nevelson

Screen Shot 2018-11-27 at 12.11.22

Ukrainian-American sculptor Louise Nevelson sourced wooden detritus to create abstract towers like this one. When her Kipps Bay block in Manhattan was being demolished, she rummaged through the trash to find elements to incorporate into her work. Chair legs, bannister spindles, small pulleys, all amalgamated into what you see here. Currently on show at the Museum of Fine Art, Houston
