Barbara Hepworth

She is one of my favorite sculptors.
My grandfather is a wood craver and was influenced by her work, and i guess went on to influence me.
Although not all of her work is to my taste, this period of work from the 40's i adore the fresh fluid curves, the crisp white isolating the warm natural wood grain and those graphical lines of the string. They are still so contemporary and look like they could have been made yesterday.
