Internationally renowned artist Liz Larner has created a new editioned work of art especially for the Nasher. yes this too continues Larner’s investigation of irregular geometries and deceptively simple sculptural forms.
yes this too is a mirrored triangle, inflated, rounded and volumetric, like a closed bivalve shell. The resulting form is suggestive of the graphic rendering of a heart, the symbol of love. Larner has explored this form in only one other work, a tiny sculpture that she cast in silver as a private edition to give to friends and family who attended her wedding. The intimacy of the association is evident in the form of yes this too, as well: larger than the tiny work Larner made for her wedding guests, the Nasher Sculpture Center edition sculpture is tactile, smooth and pleasing to touch. As the artist has noted, it is a work intended for an intimate, domestic environment, something that can be easily moved from room to room.
All proceeds from the sale of yes this too benefit the exhibition and education programs at the Nasher Sculpture Center.
