Martin Puryear




    Sculptor Martin Puryear usually works with wood, and sometimes with wire, tar, steel and bronze. The beauty of a Puryear sculpture is in its finished form, but the art is in the making. He brings vast experience in carpentry and considerable knowledge of cultural history to his understanding of sculptural form. His works evoke the archaic, the organic, the primitive or the minimal abstract and have a unique way of combining an external appearance of weight and mass with enigmatic suggestions of complex internal structure. Most are supported on wheels which obviously connects them to man. This catalog was published in conjunction with an exhibit at McKee Gallery in 2012. It includes an essay by David Levi Strauss.
