anna hepler

Gego's work also shares affinities with that of Anna Hepler. Hepler has some new drawings and woodcuts up on her website, along with a particularly Gego-esque sculpture (sorry) of two spheroids copulating. Her work on paper has a juicier, more organic feel than that of her predecessor. They feel fungus-like.

Also on display there is her tape flag installation Fall, Scatter Float and her Homage to Uccello series, both of which were in last years DeCordova Annual. The latter is a series of eight pieces, each a stack of plexiglass sheets onto which she has carved lines and dots forming wobbly round shapes. The reference, of course, is to early Renaissance painter Paolo Uccello's famous lancers.

It might also be worth noting that her site uses blogware to build something resembling a traditional artist's homepage
inevitable, I suppose, given the ubiquity of such material.

Arthur, thanks for pointing me to Gego’s work – intriguing. Would be a show worth catching. And yes, I see the connections with Anna Hepler...

You're welcome. Hopefully, I'll be able to see more work by both women.
