Human | Nature: Figures from the Craig Ponzio Sculpture Collection
Denver Botanic Gardens
April 19 - Sept. 15, 2019
The exhibition presents sculptures that explore the human form in both classical and abstract styles, from the early 20th century to today. Featured artists hail from around the world and include Eric Fischl, Jacques Lipchitz, Sassona Norton, Beverly Pepper, Auguste Rodin, Manolo Valdés and Steinunn Thorarinsdottir.
From sculpture to selfies to dance, the power of the human figure conveys and conjures a range of emotions. Human | Nature shares the expressive capacity of the human form against the backdrop of the Gardens’ diverse botanical environments.
Pictured is "Lights" a 5 piece installation of cast iron and glass by Steinunn Thorarinsdottir.
End of October 2018 the 3 part sculpture installation VALUES by Steinunn was unveiled in Zofingen, Switzerland at Siegfried AG. The project is a collaboration between Steinunn and art consultants Gertrud and Heinz Aeschlimann at Art St Urban.
