Puryear's style: modernist abstraction
Often associated with minimalism and formalist sculpture but Puryear rejects these categories
"His process can be described as reductive, seeking to bring work and material close to its original state and creating rationality in each work derived from the maker and act of making. This is what Puryear calls ″inevitability,″ or a ″fullness of being within limits″ that defines function." (Shearer)
