Betty Woodman: Diptychs focuses on two-part ceramic sculptures made by the artist between 1990 and 2013. The exhibition charts the evolution of Woodman's ideas about positive and negative space and sculpture and painting through these carefully composed works. “The space in the middle became the center of the piece,” Woodman wrote, creating a dynamic relationship between vessels, and the figures, forms, and patterns she painted upon each vase's daringly constructed wings.
