          John McQueen (American, b. 1943) Figure on Stand, USA, circa 1990 Bark, branches, twigs Unmarked (H: 97, W: 13, D: 10 in (overall)) Qty: (1) Provenance Acquired directly from the artist Property from the Robert L. Pfannebecker Collection Artist Biography John McQueen was born in Oakland, Illinois in 1943. He earned a B.A. in 1971 from the University of South Florida, Tampa and a M.F.A. in 1975 from Tyler School of Art. A self-proclaimed “maker,” McQueen is best known for his sculptural basketry constructed from natural, gathered materials. Redefining the conventional form, his work investigates the concept of containment, explores the connection between humans and the natural environment, and continually pushes the boundary between art and craft. McQueen was the recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in 1977, 1979, and 1986. His work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including a solo show at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in 1992. Examples can be found in the permanent collections of institutions worldwide, including the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American Art; the Museum of Arts and Design, New York; the Racine Art Museum; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Figure comprised of various twigs held together with zip ties; figure appears full-bodied and complete, with minimal to no losses; figure is tied and attached to pedestal base; bark in good overall condition, with stitching intact and even darkened red patina with traces of natural sap and white colored patches; approximately 18 in. up from base, small area (approximately 2 1/2 x 1 in.) with splits to bark (split is largely cosmetic and does not otherwise impact structural integrity of work); a few other scattered areas of abrasion and minor edge wear, some inherent to the materials and apparently in the making of.
