Kniaz and Windsor’s show is the second in the series—Hunt has four more planned. Through February 10, three of Kniaz’s sculptures (made from colorful tomato-plant armatures and construction mesh) join Winsor’s 1970 sculpture, Solid Lattice, a stump-like wood cylinder made from thin planks that are nailed together. A fourth work by Kniaz is a subtle carving made into the gallery wall itself, filled in with blue plexiglass (Kniaz’s works are for sale, while Winsor’s piece—which comes from the gallery’s collection—is not).
In conceiving of her pairings, Hunt has considered how the artists think and approach their work, rather than any visual cues or direct connections. With Kniaz and Winsor, she explains, the two artists share a relationship to the outdoors and plant life, as well as an interest in dance, strength, and the body. They also both started out painting, before moving on to more sculptural work.
