Kendall Buster

For sculptor Kendall Buster (born 1954), there is no distinction between art and science. Trained as a microbiologist, she explores the forms and landscapes seen in a microscope lens through her giant sculptures. She has held solo exhibitions at the Kemper Museum, Kansas City; Kreeger Museum, Washington, D.C; Anderson Gallery, Richmond; Diane Brown Gallery, New York; and the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh. She has participated in group exhibitions at the Goethe Institute, Washington, D.C; Sculpture Center, New York; Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C; White Columns, New York; Artists Space, New York among many others; and internationally at the Natal Society of Arts Gallery, South Africa; BAT Center, South Africa; and the Bahnhof Westend, Germany.

Kendall Buster studied microbiology at the University of Alabama and then went on to earn a BFA from the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C, an MFA in sculpture from Yale University, as well as participating in the Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Studio Program in New York.
