Wines Early Sculpture

  • This selection of early sculptures – constructed as a weave of steel and concrete - reflect the artist’s interest in the relationships between sculpture, industrial artifacts and building technology.  After 1967 he produced a series of ‘Landsite’ models, which broke away from the gallery-oriented conventions of exhibited objects and began exploring the use of landscape surfaces as an integral part of sculpture.  Through their engagement with regional topography, these works predicted the environmental art movement of the 1970’s and initiated ideas that would ultimately become the motivation for many of SITE’s integrative buildings and public spaces in the 1980’s.
