Rate this:
Perhaps the most surprising works by Nancy Graves (1939-1995) are her life-size sculptures of camels and dromedaries. Made of wax, fiberglass, jute, and animal skins in the late sixties, they also question the principles behind true-to-nature renditions and Pop Art alike.Graves later used NASA weather maps and maps of the moon in her works, while also citing paleontology and anthropology, art history, and artifacts from other cultures. She combined Conceptual Art with Land Art and New Figuration, advanced research arts and the art film, and made important contributions to gender research.This publication presents the artist's multifaceted oeuvre and examines its relationship to the works of her contemporaries and role models, while undertaking a reevaluation of its significance in terms of art history.
