Nancy Grossman

Brown and Black . 1965


+ Michael Rosenfeld Gallery

The expressive quality of Grossman’s 1960s constructions stem from her confident handling of the material in ways that allow the ghost lives of leather to come to the foreground. Her art evokes bodies not only in the forms she creates, but in the very material she uses to create them. She sees herself recombining elements to create “machine-animal hybrids,” and the works acquire the weight of multiple animal bodies as Grossman creates human-like forms out of clothing and objects that were themselves made from the bodies of animals.
