This volume presents works from the latter half of the 1970s by American Minimalist Robert Duran (19382005) who remained steadfast in his practice, continuing to immerse himself in abstract painting, even amid widespread pessimism towards the future of the medium.
This book presents a selection of the earliest paintings by Robert Duran (19382005), which were born of a period in which the then-young artist concurrently experimented in minimalist sculpture. Closely examining Durans practice within these years, it show show the forms and structures of his sculptures loosely illustrate the paintings surfaces.
