Known for her exploration of metaphorical and biomorphic shapes, Lynda Benglis is deeply concerned with the physicality of form and how it affects the viewer, using a wide range of materials to render dynamic impressions of mass and surface: soft becomes hard, hard becomes soft, and gestures are frozen. Benglis is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts grants, among other commendations. Her work has been acquired by numerous private collectors, as well as institutions, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Walker Art Center, and Whitney Museum of American Art.
