    Willard Boepple employs rich color in his sculptural works, which hew toward the formalist approach to abstraction. The rigor of composition is a vehicle by which the artist explores the juxtaposition of line and negative space as one expressive whole: a dance of two-dimensional elements creating a dynamic and vibrant interplay, heightened by his thoughtful selection of pure color. Together, the form and color, in Boepple’s words, make the work “sing.”

    Union Square, New York City

    This latest work by Lionel Smit, MORPHOUS, is an exploration of hybrid identity and its ever-changing nature within South Africa’s social landscape. This particular piece evokes a question of time, of past and future, and the balance point at which his country finds itself as it embarks on the next chapter of a post-Apartheid and post-Nelson Mandela South Africa, a future South Africa. This “double-vision” is a foretelling, and an acknowledgement of what has already passed, a societal commentary without judgment.
