The highly polished stainless steel exteriors of Pepper's "constructed boxes" reflect their surrounding environment, yet their inner voids dominate. Her "urban altars," totem-like statues, strive for archetypal significance. Amphisculpture, at AT & T headquarters in New Jersey, features concentric circles of concrete tunneling through the earth, topped by metallic wedges; its meaning is ambiguous. Pepper erects immense columns that resemble modern machine tools or quaint, old-fashioned Italian cast-iron lampposts. One such tower, shaped like a giant drill bit, rises over a piazza in Italy; her painted metal pyramids dot city sidewalks in the U.S. A sculptor with monumental aspirations, whose fashionable work falls into a too-easy symbolism, Pepper is the focus of an exhibit on national tour, of which this album is a tie-in.

Pepper is a dynamic sculptor whose work has evolved significantly since the 1960s. Her works range from totemic to environmental pieces, influenced by natural and manmade monuments. This first-time monograph, based on an exhibition at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, displays Krauss's deep knowledge of the artist and her processes. Krauss is known for her challenging, complex writing which will be of most interest to modern art students and scholars. The book's plates, color or black-and-white, are first-rate. For art school and specialized art history collections. Paula A. Baxter, Museum of Modern Art Lib., New York
