Helen Beling

The following text is The New York Times obituary of the artist, March 15, 2001.

Helen Beling worked in various nonobjective styles, beginning with her early wood carvings, which evoked shrouded medieval German figures. She eventually worked in stone, bronze and steel before developing an amalgam of fiberglass, reinforced resin and bronze powder, which allowed her to create large bronze sculptures that weighed very little.

Her work has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and at the Whitney Museum of American Art and is in the collection of the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington. Several of her sculptures were commissioned by synagogues, including a 26-foot-long Exodus for Temple Emanu-El in Yonkers, N.Y.  ...  Displaying 750 of 3344 characters.
