“I wasn’t breaking away from painting, I was trying to redefine what it was”, claimed Lynda Benglis, of Greek origin, when referring to the commentary instigated by her work as she appeared in the New York art scene in the late 60’s. Benglis was part of the abstract expressionism movement, but managed to push the gestural practices into new directions. She created sculptures from latex, liquid floor paintings from polyurethane, works made of gold leaf, tin and aluminum. The exhibition “Lynda Benglis: In the Realm of the Senses”, organised by NEON and curated by author and art historian Dr. David Anfam, presents 30 pieces from her creative and inspiring journey spanning over five decades. (Until 15/03/2020, Museum of Cycladic Art).
