Win Knowlton

Beginning as a young Post-Minimalist in New York City, obviously influenced by Martin Puryear and Joel Shapiro, he found his own style by creating elegant contours from iron castings and then changing to cast concrete, often showing shapes that appear to have been taken from holes dug in the ground. For inspiration, he has traveled in India, and some of his installation work also involves arrangements of Oriental rugs adorned with his crafted papier-mache birds over chicken wire. In fall, 1998, he had a special exhibition in New York City at Bill Maynes Gallery.
