<P>From the exhibition <EM>Many Things Placed Here and There: The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at the Yale University Art Gallery</EM>:</P>
<P>Steve Keister and Herbert Vogel met in 1975 when Keister was working at the Whitney Museum of American Art, in New York, where Herbert was a regular visitor. Following a Richard Tuttle exhibition that featured many objects from the Vogel Collection, Keister invited the Vogels to his studio for the first time. Keister's work reflects the artist's interest in science fiction and his affinity for the art of Richard Tuttle, also on view in this exhibition. Keister created what he called "Unidentified Suspended Objects," plexiglass, acrylic, and wood works that hang from the ceiling and transform space. This untitled work is an abstract gestural drawing inspired by these suspended objects.<BR></P>
