Abstract:

Seeing Around, the first major museum exhibition of the sculpture of Edward Tufte, is on view in The Aldrich's three-acre Sculpture Garden and the adjacent Project Space Gallery from June 13, 2009 to April 12, 2010. In the last ten years, the artist has completed fifty large-scale abstract outdoor installation artworks, one hundred table pieces, and numerous steel engravings and digital prints. His sculptures are constructed from stainless steel, weathered and rusting steel, road plate, scrap metal, discards from a nuclear power plant, and blacksmithing and mechanic's tools. The complex geometries of the stainless pieces borrow, reflect, alter, and absorb nature's light to create a multiplicity of color fields. The rusting, weathered artworks produce complex, multiple, and sometimes playful narratives.--Mailing insert.
