Red Flying Group 1976

by Ann Gillen

Similar in material and color to Calder’s “Saurien” in front of the IBM building, Ann Gillen’s “Red Flying Group” reflects both movement and the female form. While the industrial quality of her work may seem masculine, Gillen is a feminist artist who studied industrial design at Pratt. Gillen’s work is not machine-made;she takes advantage of the materials as if to challenge the viewer’s assumptions about the nature of steel sculptures and their ability to capture movement. A recipient of many public commissions, Gillen’s murals enliven the Lincoln Center parking garage and stairwells.
