TEMPEST II at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park
|About Artist Pamela Soldwedel-
Pamela Soldwedel is a sculptor who works in bronze and stone. Two of her works are in the collection of the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park. They are mid scale pieces of beautiful technical refinement and dramatic aesthetic presence. Soldwedel has a lyric sensibility which is modulated by a firm, classical understanding of form in space. Her forms revolve in and out upon themselves, discovering new twists in both inner and outer space. They could be forms from the ocean or forms from the winds. What is certain is their fundamental organicism. With titles such as "Tempest I" and "Tempest II" they make this organic dimension of clashing and contorted forces clear, yet without losing a secure sense of balance.
In the final analysis Soldwedel's works inhabit a spiritual domain where powerful vortices converge and progressively "emerge" from their own confrontation. They are beautifully realized abstract sculptures.
