Forrest Myers

American, b. 1941, Long Beach, California
Forrest Myers

 

Forrest Myers was a founding member of the Park Place Gallery along with David Novros, Edwin Ruda, and Robert Grosvenor. The Park Place artists opposed Minimalism and sought to create drama in their large scale sculptures. Myers portfolio is diverse with various materials that include wood, aluminum, steel and plastics often painted in colorful pigment. Untitled (1969-70) is one of the sixteen works of art commissioned for the Empire State Plaza Art Collection. The large, linear, and open construction of Cor-Ten and stainless steel disrupts the viewer’s sense of gravity and manipulates reality and illusionism.
