FORM FACTOR INSPIRATION: LEROY SETZIOL & LOUISE NEVELSON

For her series Form Factor (currently on view at Nationale), Emily Counts found inspiration in the carved wood panels of Portland artist, Leroy Setziol (1915–2005) and the monochrome wooden assemblages of New York artist, Louise Nevelson (1899–1988).
