The Primordial Black Holes of Lee Bontecou
Lee Bontecou’s wall assemblages are unforgettable, raw, powerful beasts. May you have the opportunity to appreciate her work in person some day.
Veronica Roberts explains how the artist discovered her signature black pigment by skewing the gas mix in her welding torch and using the resulting soot. Respect.
This video is especially valuable for the rare shots of Bontecou’s spacey mobile in motion. Enjoy!
