Ron Nagle: Handsome DrifterRon Nagle: Handsome Drifter

Published by University of California, Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive.
Edited with text by Apsara DiQuinzio. Foreword by Lawrence Rinder. Text by Jan Verwoert. Conversation by Dan Byers.

One of the most original artists working today, San Francisco–based Ron Nagle (born 1939)—the enfant terrible of abstract expressionist ceramics—has made stunning, colorful, entirely unique small clay sculptures since the 1950s.

In his sculpture, Nagle mixes allusions to modernism, middlebrow culture and the special pop sensibility of Northern California, making ceramic vessels no bigger than a few inches that draw on everything from Japanese tea ceremonies to Krazy Kat. Made with an overarching sense of playfulness and linguistic humor, a bodily and architectural sensibility, and Nagle’s keen attention to color, these finely tuned, pitch-perfect sculptures condense sensory pleasure into perfect packages of experience and feeling. Their miniature scale makes these odd, elegant, sensual and sometimes abject little abstract sculptures endlessly charming models for the imagination.

Lushly illustrated, Ron Nagle: Handsome Drifter is the most comprehensive and scholarly publication on the artist to date, with essays by curator Apsara DiQuinzio and Berlin-based art critic and theorist Jan Verwoert. A lively conversation about Nagle’s studio practice and unique process with curator and director Dan Byers of Harvard’s Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts rounds out this unmissable book.

Published by Silver Gate, Inc..
Foreword by Dave Hickey. Text by David Pagel, Joel Selvin, Jana Martin.

Years in the making, this definitive monograph presents nearly six decades of work by the pioneering San Francisco–based ceramic sculptor Ron Nagle (born 1939). The plates section features 51 sculptures made since 1958, all reproduced in full color. Critical essays by Joel Selvin and David Pagel and a foreword by Dave Hickey offer diverse perspectives on Nagle’s accomplishments as both an artist and a musician. An illustrated chronology provides an overview of his life and work, including his apprenticeship with ceramicist Peter Voulkos, his seminal role in San Francisco’s psychedelic music scene, his sound design for the film The Exorcist, and his obsessive devotion to intimately scaled sculpture. Nagle’s irrepressible personality comes through in the book’s innovative design, which includes a jacket that unfolds into a poster of the artist dressed as his film hero Charlie Chan. Also included is a CD of 21 songs spanning Nagle’s musical career, from the 1960s to the 2000s.
