    Since the 1960s, Lynda Benglis has created unique sculptural forms in a diverse array of materials through corporeal gestures of pouring, throwing, and molding in three-dimensional space. Benglis’s artistic practice is simultaneously playful and visceral, organic, and abstract, creating work grounded in her continuous investigation of sensory experience. An abstract work with figurative connotations in its title and form, Figure 5 is mounted on the wall, in contrast to those sited on the floor. Its rough, roiling surface of cast aluminum contrasts in material and texture with the smooth, soft surfaces of her earlier latex and foam sculptures.
