Alan Saret

Alan Saret (b. 1944) is an American sculptor, installation artist, and draftsman. Saret’s post minimalism drawings and sculptures made him an innovator in the genres of generative art, post-conceptual art, systems art, and process art.  During the 1960s and 1970s, Saret was a vital part of the SoHo art scene. Although prominently known for his work in wire sculpture and drawing, Saret works in a variety of media. His background in architecture merges with his environmental installations to reveal his unique feeling for line and color. Shortly after graduating from Cornell University in 1966, he began taking drawing and sculpture classes at Hunter College. His first exhibition was in Bykert Gallery in New York in 1968. He traveled to Mexico, Europe, and North Africa during the 1970s and worked in India where he developed his delicate wire mesh sculptures and pencil drawings. Balinese art inspired fantastic themes displayed in his wire sculptures and drawing. His recent environmental pieces included a variety of media including architectural pillars, timber platforms, and bathtubs. He currently resides in New York City and has work in public and private collections including The Whitney Museum of American Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
