“Beth Kamhi’s ingenious steel sculptures
fuse the delicacy of fiber art with the velocity of heavy industrial material. Referencing traditional macramé and early 1970’s fiber art, Kamhi’s sensual tapestries of woven steel beads allude to the dichotomous realm of gender and sexuality, challenging assumptions of context and association. Fluid, elegant and tactile, these inspiring works of sculpture achieve a dynamic sense of tension through their provocative juxtaposition of style, content and form.” Karin Maraney, 2011 Chelsea International Fine Art Competition, Agora Gallery NYC. The 26th competition was juried by Elisabeth Sherman, curatorial assistant at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
