Abstract (English)

Peck’s essay on Ross’s “Stella Mere” installation – 700 aluminium castings of a starfish arranged in the form of a landscape – and previous stone sculptures underlines the significance of the artist’s choice of subject matter, materials and technique. Peck’s analysis also draws attention to how women’s sculpture challenges the modernist notion of truth-to-materials. Duschenes’ poetic response to “Stella Mere” highlights Ross’s concern for natural rhythms and forms: animals, waves, forests and the earth. Relations between illusion and reality are also discussed. Biographical notes. 5 bibl. ref.
