Discovery of Lee Bontecou

I can across a Dec. 9, 2010 blogpost by Nancy Natale, The Discovery of Lee Bontecou. This Art in the Studio post included a great short video on the artist’s work, a  5-minute YouTube video by Veronica Roberts, curator of “All Freedom In Every Sense,” the small MoMA show of Bontecou’s work this past summer. This video completely captured me so I had to repost it here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did

Donald Kolberg graduated with a Fine Arts Degree from California State University, Los Angeles. He taught at the Los Angeles School of Art and co-founded Art Core, an organization dedicated to the open dialogue and display of the work of emerging artists. He continued his Master studies at Otis Art Institute. While at Otis Art Institute his teacher and main influence was internationally recognized painter Arnold Mesches. In Artcore he worked under the guidance of Lydia Takashita. With their teaching Donald learned the value of depth, texture and form in images and surface. He incorporated this into his concept of Life Forms, the portrayal of the human figure as a landscape of life and a celebration of form through Sculpture and Painting.
