Howard Kalish’s work has been shown in numerous public installations, sculpture parks and art galleries across the US, including Socrates Sculpture Park, New York, Pier Walk, Navy Pier, Chicago, Fulton Ferry State Park, Brooklyn, Federal Reserve Bank, Philadelphia, the state capitol in Baton Rouge, LA, National Academy Museum, New York, Sideshow Gallery, Brooklyn, and Lori Bookstein Fine Art, NY. His work has been written about in the New York Times, Art in America, Art News, and Artforum. He is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts grant in Sculpture.
To Kalish, the most important factor in determining what a sculpture will become is the structural principle. Sculptures can be seen through, and the juxtaposition of forms and colors against each other, and the background, is dynamic and ever-changing as one walks around them. He explores, in visual terms, connections of the parts making a whole. The finished work, always conveys a sense of further possibilities.
