Totem Materia

Betty Parsons was an American artist and art dealer known for her early promotion of Abstract Expressionism. Toward the end of her life, Betty began to make Constructions. The constructions were made from what she called "carpenter's throwaways" bits of wood and other materials that would wash up on the beach near her home in Southold, L.I. She would take the pieces of wood and hammer and glue them together, creating wonderful and unusual artworks which she then painted with bright primary colors.
