George Sugarman Painted Wood

George Sugarman Painted Wood

Gary Snyder Gallery is pleased to announce George Sugarman: Painted Wood, an exhibition of sculpture at 529 West 20th Street. Opening on May 8, 2013, the exhibition is the most comprehensive presentation of the artist’s work in over twenty-five years. Nine of the artist’s exuberant, polychromed wood sculptures will be on view, including one that has never before been exhibited–Archer (1968). A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition, with an extensive essay by Raphael Rubinstein.

The exhibition and its accompanying publication offer an in-depth look at Sugarman’s work during the 1960s–large-scale wood sculptures of eccentric, proliferating forms painted in brilliant hues. Works in the exhibition such as The Shape of Change (1964), Yellow and White (1967), and Threesome (1968-1969) well exemplify the radical, innovative spirit of Sugarman’s sculpture from this period. As early as 1959, Sugarman broke with many prevailing sculptural conventions: he dispensed with the pedestal and began placing his work directly on the floor; he decentralized his compositions, breaking individual sculptures into multiple related “units”; foremost, he employed a dramatic, almost baroque use of color.

George Sugarman: Painted Wood will be on view at Gary Snyder Gallery, 529 West 20th Street (between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues), through Saturday, June 15, 2013. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. For more information, please contact Garth Greenan at (212) 929-1351, or email garth@garysnyderart.com.
