Wall Piece with Hanging Form

Welded steel
1963

Richard Hunt is an acclaimed and prolific sculptor best known for his commissioned public sculptures found in numerous American cities. His work embodies classical ideals and traditions in a unique style of abstraction that combines both industrial and organic elements. 

While best known for his freestanding sculptures, Hunt also created three-dimension steel wall pieces throughout his career. Wall Piece with Hanging Form depicts an abstracted bulbous bundle of knuckle-like forms. Hanging from the compacted mass are sinuous metal pieces that, given Hunt’s propensity for themes of endurance and strength, can be interpreted as a manacle that has been broken open.
