Walker Art Center: Arcs of “Double Curve” – Minneapolis

Jul 31, 2020 | art/design

The two 18 foot, gently curving bronze arcs of “Double Curve” are instantly two-dimensional (viewed from the side, they almost disappear). Like the flat shapes in the artist’s paintings, they depend on their precisely controlled relationship to each other and to the surrounding area for their impact and surprising complexity. In all its minimalist simplicity, the monoliths appear to rise up from the ground. Its surface subtly changes throughout the day: rich brown in the morning light, a stark black silhouette in the midday sun. Taking into consideration the shapes and landscape visible between or around the arcs, a new vibrancy of space emerges, cut out from, or in rhythm with the surrounding environment.
