"Sandback’s sculptures outline planes and volumes in space.
Though he employed metal wire and elastic cord early in his
career, the artist soon dispensed with mass and weight by using
acrylic yarn to create works that address their physical
surroundings, the “pedestrian space,” as Sandback called it, of
everyday life. By stretching lengths of yarn horizontally, vertically,
or diagonally at different scales and in varied configurations, the
artist developed a singular body of work that elaborated on the
phenomenological experience of space and volume with
unwavering consistency and ingenuity."
