This curated selection combines two and three dimensional artworks to pair 15 of Blitt's black line drawings on paper with 19 sculptures (three of which are walls sculptures). Mediums represented therein include wood, steel, aluminum and bronze.
Blitt began making sculptures as an extension of her paintings in 1963, but it was not until the creation of the sculpture, Lunarblitt, in 1975, that she fully understood the undeniable synergy between her drawings and sculptures. From that moment forward, Blitt began making her gestural drawings on large pieces of paepr, and one after another these fluid marks found their way into the three dimensional platform.
On paper, Blitt's lines contain a kinetic energy and an imbedded sense of spirit. When translated into the third dimension, the sculptural drawings investigage our relationship with space and celebrate movement.
