Sara VanDerBeek: Pieced Quilts, Wrapped Forms at Metro Pictures

In her exhibition at Metro Pictures, Sara VanDerBeek presents large complexly colored abstract photographs alongside minimal, totemic sculptures made of pigmented concrete and painted plaster and wood. Intensifying her approach to color and pattern, VanDerBeek draws from the improvisational yet ordered compositions of American quilts, Pre-Colombian textiles and ceramics, as well as modernist textiles and weaving. VanDerBeek uses these elements to consider the historically feminist dialectic of “women’s work” and creative traditions associated with the term.
