Directions in Sculpture: With Alison Saar & Mel Kendrick

Alison Saar, whose work is seen here at the Phyllis Kind Gallery and at the Brooklyn Museum, makes evocative figures covered with rusted tin, copper, tar, and clay that suggest a relation to nature and the earth. Mel Kendrick's imposing wood and cast abstract sculptures at the John Weber Gallery in Soho allude to the human body but with a sense of decay, repair, and cloning."--Container.
