  • About the Artist

The American artist Fred Sandback (1943–2003) worked with materials including metal, elastic cord and, later, acrylic yarn to delineate or bifurcate three-dimensional space, creating room-filling and volumetric forms. Using these most minimal of means allowed him “to play with something existing and not existing at the same time”.

By stretching strands of yarn to create geometric figures, Sandback’s near intangible objects create precise and subtle delineations of planes and architectural volumes. Despite the sculpture’s strong relationship to the surrounding architecture and the artist’s commitment to the practice of drawing, he became known primarily as a sculptor. Sandback was also influential in Minimal and Conceptual Art, and for contemporary sculptors and installation artists.
