Exclusive on Bidsquare Lot #16: Beth Lipman
Cluster, no. 13
Glass and adhesive
6 1/2 x 11 x 11 in.
Beth Lipman is known for installations that blend conceptual themes with traditional glass-working techniques. Her work draws inspiration from seventeenth century Dutch still-life painting and its symbolic vocabulary. Lipman's choice of material is significant. Glass is a suggestive substance, able to precisely imitate forms while presenting a ghostly, translucent aspect as though the object had been drained of some essential vitality. This piece is composed of organic and classic still life elements that allude to the natural cycles of growth and decay.
Lipman has exhibited widely at institutions including the Ringling Museum of Art in Florida, the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Gustavsbergs Konsthall in Sweden, and Smithsonian American Art Museum. Her work has been acquired by numerous museums including the North Carolina Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Jewish Museum in New York, and the Corning Museum of Glass.
The winning bidder will have the opportunity to visit Lipman's studio in Sheboygan Falls and to enjoy lunch at a local pizzeria. All dates and times are post pandemic and by mutual agreement.
