Leonardo Drew

Leonardo Drew is a contemporary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. He creates sculptures from natural materials and through processes of oxidation, burning, and decay, Drew transforms these objects into massive sculptures that critique social injustices and the cyclical nature of existence.

I saw one at the Perez in Miami a few years ago and was blown away.

Sarah Tortora

With their current round open for submissions I was looking through the website for the Hopper Prize and found this nice interview with Sarah on “the physicality of making sculpture, negotiating balance, creative catharsis & personal truth.” Links to her portfolio (not all of which is abstract/non-representational) and site in the article.

Ruth Asawa

“Asawa lived an extraordinary life independent of her incredible body of work. Her path was a series of trials overcome and small paradises found—from internment camps in America to, later, a creative coming-of-age at Black Mountain College and in San Francisco, where she lived until her death in 2013.

Her legacy of generosity and openness to the world continues to grow along with her reputation as an artist, which was underappreciated during her lifetime despite everyone from Josef Albers to Buckminster Fuller declaring her genius indisputable. But that has been changing, year by year—just a few weeks ago, the US Postal Service announced they would be featuring Asawa on a new stamp out this fall.”
