Virginia Overton transforms salvaged architectural materials such as concrete, glass, and wood into elegiac forms that bring sculpture into an active relationship to the viewer and the shared architectural surroundings. Working within and against the tradition of post minimalism, Overton claims a most interesting platform among public sculptors working today.
