Hardback coffee table book featuring the work of sculptor, Fletcher Benton. Essay by Carter Ratcliff and commentary by Fletcher Benton, published in 2003. 1st edition, 248 pages.
"The work of one of America's leading sculptors, Fletcher Benton, is exemplified by a contrast of geometric forms, of circular to straight, planar to spherical. His sculptures are intuitively created out of the Constructivist themes of economy, efficiency and purity, and draw also on the exploration of basic circles, spheres, cylinders, cubes and squares so common in Minimalism. However, Benton's work is mostly born of a love of form and balance. The precision with which he places each element relieves them of their metallic weight and defies the forces of nature."
