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.
