Beverly Pepper

Galileo's Wedge

Beverly Pepper established her career in the wake of Abstract Expressionism in the late 1960s. She began making wedge and columnar sculptures more than 30 years ago, feeling that such iconic forms express both a sense of the ancient and modern. A wedge is a piece of wood or metal used as a tool; thick at one end and tapered on the other; it is highly sculptural in design. In Pepper’s work, scale has been greatly exploited to create a sleek sense of force and momentum that marks a sense of place and clearly stands out against the sky.
