The Force of Absence

Debra Baxter’s sculptures explore the meanings of missing. BY ALISHA KERLIN  |  The neck, anatomically speaking, is the part of the body that connects or distinguishes the head from the torso.

Four iron-colored sculptures fill and transform the space into a maze of swelling lines and […]
