'Split Ritual II'

Beverly Pepper

1992 - metal: iron

Font Size: AAA

Pepper explores and expands upon the subtle connotations of power and spiritual presence in a series of works she calls her 'Marker Series'. These particular works are similar in form to 'Split Ritual II'. They are tall and totemic, in that sense, akin to obelisks, and identified by their distinctive shapes which the artist describes as "metamorphosed tools." The scale, soaring verticality, and cast iron "weathered" surface of these sculptures transcend literal representations and convey a multitude of archetypical associations along with a pervasive primal bearing.
