Alice Aycock Drawings is the first major survey of works on paper by leading American sculptor Alice Aycock (b. 1946), who is best known for her room-scale installations and massive outdoor sculptural works that span the divide between art, architecture, and science. Featuring more than 100 works, this exhibition—which will be on view at both the Grey Art Gallery and the Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, New York (April 21–July 13)—focuses on a rarely seen aspect of Aycock’s production: her works on paper. Drawings are a vital component of her creative process, and Aycock uses them as a laboratory for developing the multi-layered complexities of her three-dimensional works. In addition to conveying specific information, the drawings on view serve as engaging aesthetic entities in their own right, combining pragmatic utilitarianism and imaginative fantasy. Organized by the Parrish Art Museum with Jonathan Fineberg as guest curator, Alice Aycock Drawings is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
