There is Lynda Benglis the sculptor, whose works provoke sheer pleasure – the way a child might love the sight of green slime. Then, there is Benglis the provocateur, a statement-maker hyperliterate in the charged signifiers of gender and power.

Lynda Benglis has yoked a childlike vision – that numinous, instinctual talent for colour and form – to a deep, interrogative engagement with art history. In so doing, she has proved one of the most ground-breaking artists of her generation.
