Behind the scenes: Inspired

Houston’s Museum of Fine Art is currently showing works by the amazing Ukranian-American sculptor, Louise Nevelson. A lateral thinker par excellence, she sourced wooden detritus to create multidimensional towers. When her Kipps Bay block in New York was being demolished, Nevelson rummaged through the trash to find elements to incorporate into her work. Chair legs, bannister spindles and small pulleys are amalgamated into the piece pictured above –  proving it’s possible to draw inspiration from many – sometimes unlikely – sources. I’ve been a fan for many years. As you can see from the shot, I’m royally chuffed to be in the presence of this masterful piece.
