“Floating Geometric Patterns” by Artist Sabine Reckewell

“Sabine Reckewell’s large-scale three-dimensional drawings in space are inspired by minimalist and conceptual art of the 1960s and ‘70s as well as her own background in design and fiber art. With modest tools – a hammer, pushpins, ribbon and a measuring tape – she creates complex geometric patterns that appear to float in mid-air. The ordinarily hard lines of these shapes are softened by the pliable property of her material and the effects of gravity. Through repetition, Reckewell is able to achieve dizzying degrees of density and transparency that ebb and flow as the viewer interacts with the piece.”

Her piece “Dual Inclinations” can be scene  September 20th -January 4th  at the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery http://www.sfartscommission.org/gallery/. Most recently her piece Double Catenary was show at Liquid Agency in San Jose in collaboration with the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art.
