In the sculptures of Louise Nevelson, irregularly shaped forms are arranged within interlocking rectangular units. A strange sense of order is established in the beautifully balanced spatial relationships that Nevelson creates within each ‘compartment’ and across the containers altogether. It is interesting to compare Nevelson’s approach with that of contemporary Russian artist Anna Parkina, whose sculptures are often made

of slotted sections of MDF or plywood. Shapes cut from these flat planes are used to create complex and engaging relationships with the cut-away spaces. The strangely recognisable but ambiguous nature of the shapes employed by both artists invites viewers to interpret connections and contrasts in all sorts of different ways.
