Pylons 1995

by Martin Puryear, 1941

Martin Puryear’s “North Cove Pylons” act as a gateway to New York. The minimalist sculptures create a dialogue based on their forms and volume. One of the pylons is solid, heavy, and angular; the other is mesh-like, round, an empty volume. Illuminated at night, they are similar to lanterns. Puryear’s sculptures focuses on minimal and abstract compositions. Puryear began his artistic career in printmaking, but his retrospective at the MoMA in 2007-2008 focused on sculptures from throughout his career.
