Brian Wall: Squaring the Circle

April 10 - June 14, 2015

Guest curated by Peter Selz and Sue Kubly, Squaring the Circle investigates recent work by English-born, Bay Area sculptor Brian Wall. For more than sixty years Wall has worked with steel to build compelling, abstract, large-scale sculptures. Though created from simple forms, his works are far from simplistic. Composed of multiple parts welded together—some cantilevered, others balancing precariously on a single point—his pieces appear at risk of launching into motion at any moment.
