Description - Ursula von Rydingsvard: The Contour of Feeling by Susan Lubowsky Talbott
This publication doc uments Ursula von Rydingsvard's exhibition at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, which features a large new leather work produced with the museum's studio. The survey - guest curated by Mark Rosenthal - largely focuses on her artistic developm ent since 2000 and reveals her predilection for emotionally - charged, visceral art that is handwrought, richly complex, and monumentally scaled.
Ursula von Rydingsvard is best known for her large - scale works and signature use of cedarwood, which evokes the grandeur and power of nature. Her sculptures' abstract shapes reference the mark of the human hand - evidence of the artist's meticulous process of cutting, shaping, and assembling her works from thousands of cedar blocks. "The Contour of Feeling" debuts a new sculpture created in collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum. Constructed from leather - a first for the artist - the new material represents an expansion for von Rydingsvard's practice.
