“I have been able to manipulate cedar in ways that are almost outrageous.”–Ursula von Rydingsvard

The sculptures are massive, yet strangely intimate. Some feel imbued with an almost primal energy: a series of installations reminiscent of wings in New York’s Battery Park, a monumental yet inviting piece outside Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the stunning “Scientia” which evokes the power of nature and the firing of brain synapses.

URSULA VON RYDINGSVARD: INTO HER OWN is an artistic biography of one of the few women in the world working in monumental sculpture.
