Vivian Beer is fearless. That’s really the best way to describe her. The 33-year-old designer/maker takes steel and cuts it. Bends it. Shapes, welds, grinds, and sands it. She transforms it – by hand and machine – from rigid raw material into impossibly curvy furniture and sculpture. And she does all of this, more or less, alone.
Vivian Beer’s 2011 solo shows are at Courthouse Gallery Fine Art (Jul. 13 – Aug. 7), Manhattanville College’s Arthur M. Berger Art Gallery (Sept. 6 – 30, partnered with Purchase College), and Wexler Gallery (Oct. 7 – Nov. 25).
