In the 1970s, Butterfield made her first horses from plaster, papier-mâché, and mud and sticks. In 1980, she traveled to Israel on a John Simon Guggenheim grant, and worked with steel and other detritus of wars, and determined the material held emotional content. This set her on a course of making horses with found and welded steel, fused aluminum, copper, and wood — materials that also have a history. Butterfield’s “Yellow River,” c. 1984, is an uncommon example of the artist’s work as the subject is in repose with an experimental minimalist aesthetic. Created using scrap metal from a school bus, the painted steel elements seem to combine organically. Butterfield is widely recognized for her materials-oriented approach to sculpture.

More than an artist, Theaster Gates also works as curator, urban planner, and project facilitator. From sculpture to painting, installation to public projects, Gates’s works are hubs in which to question labor and commodity while also bringing to the fore people and things that are often unseen and unheard. Convex Concave takes custom-made bricks that Gates had previously used for Black Vessel for a Saint at the Walker Art Center and repurposes it into a painting-like sculpture that references minimalist artist like Sol LeWitt, the labor of making bricks, and the original context of the bricks for the installation at the Walker.

Ross Bleckner is a celebrated American painter whose works reference loss, memory, and change such as explorations of the cell during the AIDS epidemic or in response to his father’s cancer diagnosis. The 1965 MoMA exhibition that brought Op Art to the fore, The Responsive Eye and included artists Richard Anuszkiewicz, Tadasky, and Francis Celentano, had a profound influence on him as an artist. This painting, like his other immersive, large-scale works, elicit a powerful, hypnotic, dizzying effect. Aesthetically pleasing, Bleckner’s canvases explore perception – visual, emotional, physical, time. Bleckner is part of the same generation of and friends with Julian Schnabel, David Salle, Eric Fischl, and Peter Halley, all of whom returned painterly technique to the canvas.

Richard Tuttle is a seminal American postminimalist artist. Tuttle’s work is conceptual and meditative, crossing the boundary of sculpture, painting, and poetry, and often challenging the viewer. Untitled (Cloth and Paint Work #2) from 1973, a pivotal period in the artist’s career, evokes the earlier minimalism of his career while pushing towards material-based conceptual art. In the work he pays homage to Marcel Duchamp’s readymades. Textiles, as in this piece, play a large role in his oeuvre and become sites on which to focus performance, engagement, and meaning.

Contemporary American artist George Condo coined the term “artificial realism” to characterize the figures that appear in his work – often described as a combination of European Old Master painting and American Pop art. Condo has defined the term as the “realistic representation of that which is artificial.” Known for figures that are often grotesque or fractured, Condo creates art that is both Contemporary and rooted in art historical tradition, drawing inspiration from Cubism or, in this case, reaching back to ancient Greece. In an uncommon work of sculpture, Condo imparts his distinctive style to the face of a Mycenaean archetype, the goddess figure.

Contemporary German artist Katharina Grosse works in a variety of media to accomplish site-specific works as well as smaller-scale sculptures such as the present work, "Untitled 2015".  The structure of Grosse's compositions are meant to invoke emotional reactions from the viewer.  The artist believes that the physical presence of the viewer affects the work and changes an individual's experience of that work.  
<br>
<br>Grosse is included in numerous museum collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and in 2019 was selected for a mural commission at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. "Untitled, 2015" has a prestigious exhibition history, having been included in: Venice Biennale Art, "All the World's Future," 2015 by Okwui Enwezor (curator).

<br>"That is the challenge for me, to find a way to make painting visible - make it a visceral part of our everyday life"- Katharina Grosse.
