Anne Chu, ‘Rubric Study: Boxing  Lepus No. 2’, 2014, Public Art Fund Benefit Auction 2015

Estimated value: $5,000

The New York-based sculptor’s recent work blends a sense of fairy-tale whimsy with forceful emblems of materiality. In this study, a lithe and pugnacious rabbit boxes a treble clef. Squares of color collaged atop the picture add elements of abstraction and sculpture to the composition.

About Anne Chu

In keeping with her eclectic sources of inspiration—ranging from photographs of birds and medieval friezes to the biblical love poem “Song of Solomon”—Anne Chu works across media to produce diverse, evocative works that evoke mythology, ritual, and fables. Never literal, her sculptures, prints, paintings, and photographs are suggestive and imaginative musings on her chosen subjects. Chu's expressive sculptures of bears and bears’ heads, for example, reflect her interest in the terracotta warriors of China.

American, 1959-2016, New York, New York, based in New York, New York
