b. 1945, USA; lives and works in New York
Willard Boepple's full-size sculptures are influenced by commonplace functional objects that have a relationship to the scale of the human body. Indeed, most of his works take as their point of departure considerations such as the dimensions of the intervals of a ladder's rungs, scaled to an average step or the dimensions of a shelf designed to hold things scaled to the hand. Our subliminal awareness of these relationships humanises Boepple’s work.

He has exhibited widely in NewYork and abroad, and his work can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Storm King Art Center; and The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, UK.
