About the Book
Lanny Bergner is an international mixed-media sculptor/installation, fiber and sculptural basketry artist. He was born in Anacortes, WA in 1952 and received his BFA in sculpture from the University of Washington in 1981 and an MFA in sculpture from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in 1983. His work is in numerous museum collections including the Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, WA; Museum of Art and Design, NY, NY; Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, MA and The Central Museum of Textile, Łódź, Poland. His sculptural works reference architecture, plant biology, microorganisms, cosmology, undersea life forms and the human body. They engage the viewer with glimpses into a primordial genesis where nature and industry coalesce. They celebrate the mystery and wonder of it all. Lanny has been creating biomorphic and geometric constructions and installations out of metal mesh since 1983.
