Nancy Graves
American, 1939–1995
Follow

The first female artist to receive a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Nancy Graves emerged from 1970s New York alongside fellow artists Lynda Benglis and Richard Serra. Graves works in a style distinct from her postminimalist peers’, creating works that range from representation to abstraction. Inspired by the natural universe and science, she painted expressive compositions drawn from satellite imagery and weather systems. She is perhaps best known for Camels (1968), a trio of life-size animals that referenced taxidermy, using burlap, wax, fiberglass, and animal skin to hyperrealistic sculptural effects. Graves’s prolific practice expanded to eventually include assemblage, film, and gouache works on paper.
