Founded by artists in 1928, SculptureCenter is a not-for-profit arts institution located in Long Island City, NY. We commission new work and present exhibits by emerging and established artists from New York and around the world. Our Tumblr site focuses on emerging artists and work that offers new ways of considering sculpture, or furthers the understanding of the discipline and how it can intersect with other mediums. Content is selected by SculptureCenter’s curatorial staff and guest curators.

FEATURED ARTIST: Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels
Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels (b. 1982, Tennessee) is an Australian-American installation artist based in Brooklyn who makes large-scale architectural responses to small fantastical blueprint drawings that abstract and compress representations of family systems. Utilizing geometry in ways akin to Sierpinski fractals or crystal structures– where larger wholes are made from smaller repeating components– Fels uses triangles as a process of mapping the thousands of other people that make up ourselves. The resulting installations turn discarded housing materials into environmental outgrowths that strive to capture both the expansive feeling triggered by vast landscapes and the intimacy felt in discovered nooks. Her work has recently been shown at the Clocktower Gallery in New York, Sky High Gallery in Milwaukee, and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.  She is currently working on a small custom installation in the Clocktower Gallery’s new radio station at Pioneer Works.

FEATURED ARTIST: Daniel Sinsel

Daniel Sinsel’s minimal yet intricately detailed works reflect a focus on the nature sculpture and on the particular qualities and associations of the materials he uses. These materials carry meaning through their origins and historical resonances. Sinsel underscores the alchemy of using one material as the basis for representing another material. His sculptures are preoccupied with spaces, forms and textures. These tactile pieces speak of craft-based methods of construction such as weaving, folding and sewing, through which states of rigidity and flaccidity are alluded to in various forms. Despite the technical nature of their making, the result is human, sensual and anti-modernist in form.Born in 1976 in Munich, Daniel Sinsel received his B.A. in painting from the Chelsea College of Art and Design, London, in 2002 and his M.F. in painting from the Royal College of Art in 2004. Sinsel has held solo exhibitions at Micky Schubert, Berlin (2013 & 2009), Office Baroque, Antwerp (2011), Chisenhale Gallery, London (2011); The Breeder, Athens (2008); Sadie Coles HQ, London (2012, 2009 & 2007) and Luisa Strina Sao Paulo (2006). His work has also been featured at Studio Voltaire, London (2012); Kaleidoscipe Project Space, Milan (2011); Galeria Franco Noero, Milan (2010); Jerwood Space, London (2010); Royal College of Art, London (2009); MoMA, New York (2009); Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2007); Hauser & Wirth, Zürich (2005) and Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York (2004).
