Ursula Von Rydingsvard
German, b. 1942
Follow

An internationally recognized sculptor, Ursula Von Rydingsvard creates large-scale, sometimes monumental abstract forms that resemble geological formations, landscapes, giant vessels, elements of the body, or walls that evoke her experience growing up in Nazi slave-labor and refugee camps. Rydingsvard typically works with cedar wood, composing her sculptures from intricate networks of individual beams into which she and her team cut wedges, knobs, and teeth using circular handsaws; the parts are glued and stacked together and sometimes stained with special pigments. Rydingsvard produced her 2013 abstract bronze sculpture Ona (“she” or “her” in Polish), a 12,000-pound public art installation in Brooklyn with a bumpy, textured surface, by carving the work in wood before casting it in bronze, and applying chemicals to the surface that react with the metal to create different colors.
