Arp’s wood reliefs, consisting of layered shapes painted in distinct colors, stand out from the wall with palpable physicality. Their titles typically refer to natural forms or simple objects. However, in assembling the shapes, Arp remakes those familiar things into new and uncommon entities. Metamorphosis, rather than a static depiction of things in the world, was Arp’s guiding principle.
