Cy Twombly’s sculpture made between 1948 and 1995. Composed primarily of rough elements of wood coated in plaster and white paint, these objects are fundamentally abstract, yet they evoke a range of associations to both the built environment and the natural world.
Cy Twombly’s sculptures are crude and elegant, tough and refined, ancient and contemporary. These spare, complex wooden constructions are evocative of archaic relics but distilled through a uniquely modern language of sculptural form.
These sculptures were my main influence for my sculpture. I really loved the relation between plaster and the rough elements being a strange and interesting constrast between the structure of the sculpture and the material used and felt like it successful brings to attention the form of the objects. This is something which I wanted to incorporate into my sculpture.
