b. 1941, France
Lives in New York, USA
International artist Bernar Venet uses mathematics within his sculptural practice, producing works that revel in balanced sublimity. Working primarily in steel and across all size scales, he creates static and stoic forms of angles, arcs, and lines in a minimalist style. One of the most significant artists of his generation, his practice has made pioneering contributions to the field of sculpture globally.
