Lynda Benglis

Lynda Benglis (born October 25, 1941 in Lake Charles, Louisiana) is an American sculptor known for her wax paintings and poured latex sculptures. Benglis' work is noted for an unusual blend of organic imagery and confrontation with newer media incorporating influences such as Barnett Newman and Andy Warhol. Her early work used materials such as beeswax before moving on large polyurethane pieces in the 1970s and later to gold-leaf, zinc, and aluminum. The validity of much of her work was questioned until the 1980s due to its use of sensuality and physicality.

    I have a sandcast glass sculpture “Roundtail Chub” done in 1985-86 which has broken. I there any way to contact Ms Benglis and find out how to repair it?

    Miss Benglis,

    I have what appears to be an oil painting of of anchored boats in a harbor with buildings on the left. These are older wooden boats and the painting is signed – Benglis . I have seen a print of this painting in a list of your work but it does not seem to fit the type of art you produce. The painting I have is of very good quality. Can you confirm if this is one of your works. I bought this painting locally and I live just out of Beaumont, Texas. Not far from your home town.
