We had started a small collection of vintage wire baskets- the idea has been to hang them on the wall in our keeping room, celebrating their utilitarian beginnings while abstracting the forms, playing with light as it hits the structure. This weekend, as we installed the baskets, Martin Puryear and Terry Winters came to mind. Perpetual favorites, their work seems essential to us- grids and structures that seem organically engineered for the sake of art alone. Somehow, they provide aesthetic insight into infrastructures and composites that me may otherwise take for granted.
