Mark Di Suvero, Bob Spring, and Lynda Benglis
On Saturday May 16, 2015 Storm King Art Center in New Windsor, NY celebrated the installation and opening of Lynda Benglis exhibition Water Sources. It was a memorable day with many highlights. One notable moment was the coming together of Bob Spring, Lynda Benglis, and Mark Di Suvero. Two of Lynda's bronze fountains on exhibit developed from work Bob and Lynda did in the 1980's, and furthered for Lynda's 2009 retrospective at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. Bob and Mark joked about old times, as many years ago Mark came to the foundry and asked Bob to cast a few of his works.
After lunch Bob and Jeffrey joined Lynda for a walk to review the installation. Modern Art Foundry cast Crescendo and North South East West. In creating both works Lynda layered additional pourings of foam at the foundry. Lynda is quoted in the exhibition guide: "the foundries are my studios, and their employees, my collaborators."
"Working with Lynda on this exhibition was a very rewarding experience for me. Yes there were challenges and Lynda made demands. Lynda requires you to be present and hands on. My working days with Lynda will always be a special memory" - Jeffrey Spring
