Nancy Steinson

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, Steinson came to New York and became an abstractionist under the impact of Constantin Brancusi, Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson. Small ovular and curvilinear forms gave way to liberating, purely geometric structures that were free to move out of a central core in order to express movement, direction, space and scale. Her work is almost exclusively, except in works on paper, formed with curved planar forms and linear straight edges which suggest a more organic approach to form as opposed to the industrial purity of early minimalism.
