Welded standing sculpture, cor-ten steel and industrial found metal parts, 76 x 60 in., circa 1990.

From the New York Times, Michael Brenson, "Critics' Choice": "With her exhibition at the Gruenebaum Gallery (415 West Broadway, through April 4), Susan Rodgers has established herself as one of the best steel sculptors around. She works with scraps that she finds mainly in junkyards. She lengthens or shortens, twists or bends the steel, but leaves it fundamentally unaltered. Some scraps are welded together, others left unjoined: this fluent, confident, seemingly harmonious vision is filled with absence...The work is fully rooted in the history of welded steel sculpture. There are clear signs of Gonzalez and David Smith. Rodgers's growing involvement both with defying gravity and remaining firmly on the ground brings to mind the more fully three-dimensional sculpture of Anthony Caro. But, unlike her Formalist ancestors, Rodgers takes imagery not just from the landscape, but also from religion and myth. To a sculptural tradition that has been dominated by issues of technique and form, she has a chance to add an imaginative breadth."
Estimate: $ 800.00 - $ 1200.00
Sold at $1500

4 wrought iron sculptures, from 20 to 26 in. tall.

After graduating from Vassar with a degree in philosophy, she went on to study design at Domus Academy in Milan, and metalworking at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Banks has shown her work extensively in New York and New England, including a solo exhibition at the University Gallery at U. Mass, Amherst.

In 1996, Banks installed Faces: Times Square, a permanent 166 foot sculptural fence on the traffic median between Seventh Ave. and Broadway, New York, NY, for which she won an Award for Excellence in design from the Art Commission of New York City. Her public works also include a commission for the Binghamton Visitors Center in upstate New York. In 2002, Banks created two large steel sculptures for the Hunts Point Recreation Center: Louisa, a horse located outside the basketball court, and Rusty, a dog located in the lobby near the front desk. Both sculptures were forged from continuous steel rods and each resembles a three-dimensional line drawing. The artist explained that by installing these “functionless” sculptures at a recreation center, she hoped to inspire children’s interest in creating and admiring works of art.
