Ascending Bowl 1992‑I

  • Mark Lindquist, Ascending Bowl 1992-I, 1992, walnut, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Fleur and Charles Bresler in honor of Kenneth R. Trapp, curator-in-charge of the Renwick Gallery (1995--2003), 2003.60.34

Mark Lindquist applied deep carvings to the entire surface of Ascending Bowl #1. The lines of intersecting texture sweep upward from the narrow base to the large opening and distort the grain of the wood. Lindquist often responds directly to the shape of the wood, and in this piece the natural cracks and blemishes form an integral part of the design. (See also 1981.131.)
With the wood, I enter into a dialogue about form and expression. The wood really talks to me and it’s important to listen.” Mark Lindquist, 1996
