Claire Falkenstein: An Expansive Universe
02/18/2012 - 10/27/2012
“Claire Falkenstein: An Expansive Universe” features a selection of the artist’s larger sculptural work and rarely-seen paintings, and follows an earlier Getty Initiative: Pacific Standard Time exhibition at the gallery of her intimately-scaled sculpture, wall pieces and iconic jewelry.
Claire Falkenstein’s (1908-1997) work, with its innovative use of materials such as glass, metal and resin, reveals a prescient fascination with the possibilities of chance and choice which parallels current views of our expanding universe. Her ability to move sculpture to non-traditional realms, whereby she incorporates and suggests both the expansiveness of form as well as the compression of space, has established her as one of the most important modern artists in this medium.
The exhibition also launches the first major publication detailing her entire career – "Claire Falkenstein" – with essays by art historians Susan M. Anderson and Maren Henderson, art writer and critic Michael Duncan, and an introduction by Philip Linhares, President of the Falkenstein Foundation and former Chief Curator of Art at the Oakland Museum of California
