Add to Collection

Blane De St. Croix is an internationally exhibited artist. He has been the recipient of numerous awards including The Guggenheim Fellowship; The West Prize, The Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant; The Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant; The MassArt Alumni Award for Outstanding Creative Accomplishment, The National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Sculpture. He has received reviews in The New York Times, Art in America, Sculpture Magazine and New York Magazine among others. De St. Croix's work explores the geopolitical landscape through large scale sculptural works. (Un)Natural History is a monumental miniature landscape that is installed in the abandoned Grand Hall of the Public Museum. The massive detailed work depicts a landscape functioning as a subliminal still in an ambiguous state of both destruction and regeneration. The work hovers in mid air and is viewable from numerous vantage points (above and below), both encompassing and disorienting the viewer.
