'Pinched'

William Donnan

1998 - other: concrete, reinforced

Font Size: AAA

This work by William Donnan, an artist from North Carolina, came to Grounds For Sculpture from Pier Walk ’98 in Chicago. 'Pinched', made from reinforced cement, is an abstract sculpture with a monochromatic brown pigmented finish that acts to unify the whole. The overall striated texture also forms a continuity throughout its surface. Solid, asymmetrical and angular sections appear to be stacked at one end of the work, and this dominant vertical section is counterbalanced by a thin cantilevered element. This horizontal thrust creates a tension between the plane of the ground and the sculpture, and another between the two divergent major components of the work.
