K. Gretchen Greene’s wall-panel sculpture, River, captures the artist’s reflections on various rivers and streams through welded steel and lacquer-sculpted waves. The panel’s scrolling forms are poised to crash and engulf the viewer while iterating the undulation of memories as they appear and fade away. River is comprised of three overlapping panels, from which torched text and plasma cut curling forms narrate the artist’s recollections while suggesting the currents of a lively river.
The intricacies of Greene’s multidisciplinary mind—she is not only a sculptor and painter, but also a mathematician—are visually expressed by the intricacies of her intensive, artistic process. Seeking the limits of her tools and material, she heats, hammers, bends, curls, and overlaps steel. Then, with graceful sweeping gestures, she writes with fire, leaving silver, bronze, and cobalt tones to mark the passage of time.
River may be hung vertically or horizontally, with its three panels stacked as a single unit, or separately as a triptych.
