Betty Gold
(b. 1935 California)
Triangle deconstruction (four works)
Acrylic on Arches paper under Plexiglas
Each: Signed lower right: Betty Gold
Sheet of each: 22.5" H x 15" W

Notes: Venice, California-based Betty Gold was born in Austin, Texas, in 1935. A former Miss Texas, Gold is most prized for her sculptures of steel plates coated in bright colors. Gold has long trod her own path in both life and art, pursuing a career in the male-dominated field of large-scale sculpture, and thriving.

'My inspiration comes from many directions, experiences, and channels, but my work always begins with the simple act of folding paper' (Betty Gold). This humble beginning is particularly evident in the two works included in this auction. The sharp folds and steep angles evoke the folds of paper on which the form was based. The primary colors of yellow and red command attention and create an irresistible blend of form and finish.

  • Condition: Generally good condition. Framed floating and mounted to the back mat. The paper with deckled edges. Not examined out of the frame.
    Frame of each: 30.5" H x 23" W x 1.5" D
