Tuesday, January 17th, 2006, Vancouver, BC at 10:00am – The Vancouver International Sculpture Biennale is pleased to announce its 18th sculpture installation. American Artist, Betty Gold’s 11’ sculpture titled, Santa Monica III-B, will be installed at the circular pathway at the Georgia Street entrance to Stanley Park.
Having just celebrated a major retrospective of her work at the Casal Solleric de Palma, Mallorca, Spain, Betty Gold, a former Miss Texas, at 70 years of age continues to turn eyes. The major part of Betty Gold’s career has been based on a geometric concept, and she continues to find new ways in which to express its truth and universality. Betty Gold’s sculptures shine in the white, red, yellow and blue glossy enamel that compliments the graceful simplicity of her work – two-dimensional sheets of steel reassembled into a three-dimensional form.
Her work has often been described as “origami” in steel. Her works are in private and public collections in the United States and Europe, and her large outdoor sculptures are in permanent installations in Spain, Europe, Eastern Europe, Japan, Ireland, South Korea, Mexico and the United States.
