Published by Garth Greenan Gallery.
Text by Raphael Rubinstein.

American sculptor George Sugarman (1912Ė1999) was discarding the prevailing sculptural conventions of his time as early as 1959, dispensing with the pedestal and placing his work directly on the floor, breaking individual sculptures into multiple related units and employing a dramatic, almost baroque use of color. "In my sculpture, the color is as important as form and space," he wrote. "An important aspect is that the color is not used decoratively. Itís not used to be pretty or attractive. It is used to articulate the sculpture in space." Works such as "The Shape of Change" (1964), "Yellow and White" (1967) and "Threesome" (1968Ė1969) exemplify the radical spirit of Sugarmanís sculpture from this period. This publication offers an in-depth look at Sugarmanís work during the 1960s--large-scale wood sculptures of eccentric, proliferating forms painted in brilliant hues--and accompanies the most comprehensive presentation of the artistís work in more than 25 years.
