In more recent years, Larry Estridge's work focused on abstract sculpture works in steel and aluminum, which build on his long-term fascination with primary forms in nature and their reflection in diverse art-historical contexts.
In the pieces shown here, the sculptor works with uniformly-wide metal strips, a break (which bends and folds the material) and a slip roller (with which he creates curves), to fashion diverse elements which are combined into more complex structures through improvisatory and chance operations.
The finely worked, industrially-finished pieces, with their complex topological surfaces that actively play off one another with changing light and vantage point, offer diverse readings of archetypal content. Larry Estridge lived and worked in Torrey, Utah, Key West, Florida, and New York City. His work is represented in prominent collections throughout the country.
