Washington, DC, artist Kendall Buster creates monumental sculptures whose sleek forms suggest natural things such as enormous seeds or pods. Her precisely articulated forms also suggest probing and receiving - exterior parts and interior spaces. With undergraduate degrees in microbiology and art, and an M.F.A. in sculpture from Yale, Buster combines a naturalist's desires with a minimalist's aesthetic. The resulting large-scale sculptures represent, in her words, the "demarcation of empty space, a site of germination where an event has happened or is about to occur." Buster created new sculptures for this exhibition in half of the main gallery, and was an artist in residence at the Kemper Museum.
