Carol Hepper, Vertical Chamber South Dakota Art Museum

Carol Hepper grew up on a ranch near McLaughlin, South Dakota and attended South Dakota State University. Following her graduation from SDSU, she moved to New York City where she has become very successful in the art world.

Hepper’s sculptures are strongly influenced by her life in South Dakota. They are built from the traces of living things. Branches, animal skins and animal bones are brought together as if they were shelters.

The work is carefully crafted but retains irregularities of natural objects. It reveals a contemporary approach to three-dimensional abstraction and to the use of color in unexpected ways, at the same time shows us how art can re-infuse life into the surrounding environment.
