Donald Lipksi

American Sculptor
 

American sculptor Lipski has gained international recognition for his ingenious re-imagining of existing objects.  Through playful juxtapositions and alterations, Mr. Lipski transforms disparate materials into poetically evocative and deeply engaging assemblages. Capturing the spirit of surrealism, Lipski challenges viewers to respond to the conceptual associations within his work. 
 
Since coming to prominence with his installation "Gathering Dust' at the Museum of Modern Art  (1979),  a composition which consisted of thousands of tiny sculptures pinned to the gallery walls, Mr. Lipski's work has been shown in galleries and museums around the world.  He is the winner of many awards and honors, including The Guggenheim Fellowship, National Endowment for the Arts, The Academy Award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and The Rome Prize.  Over the course of his career he has created many compelling large-scale, sculptural installations and has earned a place in the permanent collections of dozens of museum including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney, The Menil Collection, and The Chicago Art Institute.
