Hybrid Form #3

Richard Hunt (b.1935) Hybrid Form #3, 1970 Cast bronze, wood, and laminate base Sculpture: 56 × 28 × 16 in. The Studio Museum in Harlem; gift of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Shore 1983.11

Richard Hunt is best known for his public commissions and abstract sculptures composed of welded and wax-cast metals. His freestanding sculptural works evoke the elegance of the natural world through abstract forms. Hybrid Form #3 is a mixture of the biomorphic and the purely abstract; it rises from a hard-edged geometric base into a smooth, rounded form that culminates in extensions that suggest antlers.
