NEW YORK, NY.- Marlborough Gallery presents the exhibition of new stone sculptures by the notable American sculptor, Beverly Pepper. "Metamorphoses" will open at Marlborough Chelsea, 545 West 25th Street, on February 18 and continue through March 20, 2010. In this new series of small stone sculptures, the artist continues to examine the issues of time, monumentality, and materials that characterize her oeuvre.

Pepper will exhibit sixteen new works of marble, granite, and onyx that capture the same physical strength and sense of timelessness as her large-scale works. While her use of marble, granite and onyx pays poetic homage to both sculptural and architectural historic traditions, she reaches well beyond historic quotations and invents through her sculpture the means to see the past and present as a thoughtfully and visually rich continuum. As with her previous stone sculptures, Pepper continues to demonstrate her unique ability to create works that seemingly exist both in and outside of historic time.

Works in this exhibition display a variety of Pepper’s techniques; they have scratched, cracked, polished smooth, broken, and drawn upon surfaces that tower, curve and twist. Triangles pervade the series; multiplying in parallel in "Double Triangles", 2009 (21 x 24.5 x 8.5 cm) and "Chthonic Linked", 2009 (26 x 43 x 9 cm); forming mirror images in "Black Prelude", 2009 (31 x 18 x 7 cm); emerging out of onyx in "Chthonic Revealed", 2009 (26.5 x 30 x 19 cm); curving solid marble in "Bent Triangle", 2009 (30 x 39 x 29 cm); slicing open Zimbabwe granite in "Portal of Valor", 2009 (49 x 46.5 x 12 cm) or carving it away in "Grey Silence", 2009 (24 x 35 x 8.5 cm). Geometry reverberates throughout, conjuring powerful images of nature, eternity, serenity.

Born in 1922 in Brooklyn, Pepper trained to be a painter. After a trip to Angkor Wat in 1960 she turned to sculpture. Her first exhibition of wooden sculptures was at the Pogliani Gallery in Rome in 1961. In 1962 along with David Smith and Alexander Calder she participated in the landmark exhibition, Sculpture Nella Citta, in Spoleto, Italy. In addition to a lifetime of gallery exhibitions, she has had numerous solo museum shows, among them those at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, The Brooklyn Museum, New York and the San Francisco Museum of Art, California.

Pepper has worked extensively with public sites creating numerous environmental works and sculptures in the United States, as well as in Europe and Asia. Among them, Nuova Twist, an 18-foot-high sculpture just completed for the Bankers Court Building in Calgary, Alberta; Denver Monoliths, two massive vertical cast stone sculptures permanently installed at the entry plaza of the Denver Museum of Art, Colorado; Ptolemy’s Wedge, a 30-foot-tall sculpture for the Cesar Pelli designed Minneapolis Central Public Library, Minnesota; the Manhattan Sentinels, a work created for New York City’s Federal Plaza; Sol I Ombra, a 100,000-square-foot park in Barcelona, Spain; Teatro Celle, a sculpture-theater at the Fattoria Celle sculpture park in Pistoia, Italy; Palingenesis, a 100-meter cast iron and grass environment in Zurich, Switzerland; Departure—for my Grandmother, of poured concrete, branches, and tar, 196-feet long, in Vilnius, Lithuania, and the Sacramento Stele, four eighteen-foot-tall rough-hewn stone columns for California’s Environmental Protection Agency.

Currently, she is working on a soil, sod, grass and steel land art sculpture for the Ralph Klein Environmental Education Centre and Legacy Park in Calgary, Alberta; and a 60-foot fountain, set in a public park of her own design, in Terni, Italy. Pepper lives and works in Todi, Italy and New York.

Beverly Pepper has received two Doctor of Fine Art Honorary Degrees (Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY and the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD), the Accademico Meritati from the University of Perugia, Italy; the Amic de Barcelone, Spain; Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, France, and the Legends Award from Pratt institute.

Her works can be found in major museums throughout the world including The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, Canada; The Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; The Brooklyn Museum, NY; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France; The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Dallas Museum of Art, TX; Detroit Institute of Arts, MI; Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, Rome, Italy; The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington. DC; The Jewish Museum, New York, NY; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Museu d’Art Contemporari de Barcelona, Spain; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; Museum of Modern Art, Sapporo, Japan; The San Francisco Museum of Art, CA; The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN and The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY.
