Stoney Lamar, Self-Portrait, 1992, box elder, 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), 2003.60.31
Stoney Lamar's work is often inspired by Aegean Cycladic sculptures. These date from 2500 to 1200 BC and are small, roughly hewn stone carvings that resemble human and animal forms. This same spare detail is evident in Lamar's work, which combines simple curves and planes into sculptures that suggest organic forms.
