“Math shaded into mantra” is how one critic described Jackie Winsor’s blend of minimalist geometric forms with the personal ritual of repetitive manual labor. Sol LeWitt and Donald Judd’s sculptures were manufactured by fabricators, but #2 Copper was built by the artist. Its form and scale relate to the size and strength of her body. Winsor used rough construction materials typically associated with masculinity but united them through a surprisingly feminine process, coiling the wire into a ball as if it were a skein of yarn for knitting.
