Elizabeth Turk: Cages
March 1st - March 31st 2012
*Meet the artist at the gallery on March 10, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

In the four years since her last exhibition with Hirschl & Adler Modern, Elizabeth Turk’s efforts and her astonishing marble sculpture have been duly recognized. A 2010 MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, followed by a Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation Fellowship and a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, presented the artist with unforeseen opportunities, along with the challenge to push herself, and her medium, to new limits.

In this new series of works which she calls Cages, Turk continues her dialogue with stone, stretching its limitations through her daring manipulation of form and material. Also at the heart of this exhibition is her core concept: the complex relationship between idea, time, and physical matter.
