Donut #7

Fletcher Benton, USA


Using materials representative of heavy industry and in size and volume compatible with America’s position in the world, Benton’s sculpture Donut #7 has a finesse, sophistication and elegance not often associated with the medium. Benton’s militantly rigid form embodies these qualities, dominating and commanding its space and surroundings, demanding the viewer takes notice. The simplicity of each clustered shape also abstractly reveals forms of nature, geometry and human activity.
