'Untitled'

Beverly Pepper

c. 1968 - metal: steel, stainless; enamel paint

Font Size: AAA

In contrast to her later works, Beverly Pepper's earlier works often focused on the use of highly reflective surfaces, as in the reflective 'Untitled' on view in the Water Garden. Composed of hollow blocks, the exteriors are polished to a mirror-like sheen denying the three-dimensionality of the material, while the open, visible interiors are painted in dark hues to appear solid. This ephemeral tie to the sculpture's surrounding environment--the mirrored image--foretells of Pepper's later earthworks in which the sculpture is physically connected to the site.
