Hood Quarterly, spring 2008

The sculptor Larry Fane's interest in engineering and the three-dimensional language of the functional object is apparent in the Hood's new acquisition Mill Piece, a remarkable work constructed of various kinds of wood. Fane exploits the texture, color, and grain of the wood, which he has fashioned into forms that evoke New England's industrial past. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1933, Fane studied at Harvard and the Boston Museum School and, after an apprenticeship to the sculptor George Demetrios, moved to New York, where he has worked for the past forty years.
