Untitled

  • John McQueen, Untitled, 1992, yucca, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Eleanor T. and Samuel J. Rosenfeld, 1997.41.3

Luce Center Label

Like many of John McQueen’s baskets, Untitled was woven around other pieces of wood used as forms. The rough-edged angularity of this piece evokes the aggressive plant from which the artist took his materials. McQueen further emphasizes this with areas of bristly and irregular plaiting.
