Nancy Davidson


Known for sensuous and suggestive inflatable sculptures, part figurative, but mostly abstract, Nancy Davidson presents in “Dustup” what is perhaps her most outlandish and ambitious work to date. Reaching the gallery rafters, the 16-foot-high title piece glows with bulbous pink, white and yellow shapes. The pair of turquoise cowboy boots attached to the balloons on one side might be a too literal–the artist was inspired by her recent in-depth study of the American rodeo cowgirl.
