H.C. Westermann

Selected Work

Opening on September 13, 2007, Zwirner & Wirth will present a select survey of sculptures by the influential American artist H.C. Westermann. The exhibition brings together a group of ten key works that exemplify his innovative use of traditional craft techniques to create a body of sculptural work that remains uniquely situated in the canon of 20th Century art.

From the late 1950s until his death in 1981, Westermann worked with a number of materials and formal devices to address a range of personal, literary, artistic, and pop-cultural references. The artist's sculptural oeuvre is distinguished by its intricate craftsmanship, in which wood, metal, glass, and other materials are laboriously hand-tooled, and by its ability to convey an offbeat, often humorous, individualistic sensibility.
