Tara Donovan

Okay, so Tara Donovan is not exactly an emerging artist… In fact she is quite established, but her work is amazing. And having recently revisited some of her sculptures I decided to share her anyway for those of you who may not know about her. I first found out about Donovan in Sculpture Magazine {the Dec. 05 issue}. Sculpture is a great publication put out by the International Sculpture Center, and if you become a member you get discounts on their periodicals, tools, supplies and services {which can include foundries, sculpting tool suppliers and more!}

So as an excited undergrad I first found her work in this magazine and was totally entranced by how stunning it was. {I’m sure you’ll agree…} Donovan uses everyday manufactured materials in her work like drinking straws, styrofoam cups and scotch tape, to create her large scale biomorphic sculptures.

She is represented by Pace Wildenstein, New York and by Stephen Friedman Gallery, London. Donovan is the recipient of the first Calder prize in 2005 and was a MacArthur Fellow in 2008.

    Asking questions are really good thing if you are not understanding anything
    completely, except this article offers good understanding yet.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across
    a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy I found this in my search for
    something regarding this.
