In the early 1960s, Beverly Pepper had fully embraced both an abstract vocabulary over representational imagery and a career as a sculptor over that of a painter. This important early work is closely related to her sculptures of the period - in particular those made for the famed exhibition Festival of Two Worlds in 1962. The interlocking gestures are bold, and the sense of movement is convincingly suggested.
