Produced on the occasion of Ron Nagle’s first solo exhibition at Stuart Shave/Modern Art, this catalogue illustrates the 19 works in the exhibition by the artist in full colour, and includes a foreword by Stuart Shave.
For over five decades, Ron Nagle (b. 1939) has produced intimate sculptural works. Each work is created from a variety of materials and is a careful arrangement of contrasting forms, colours, and textures that reflect a breadth of influences including the paintings and drawings of Giorgio Morandi, Philip Guston, Josef Albers, the custom cars and hot rods of the West Coast from the 1930s-50s, and Wabi-Sabi qualities of Japanese Momoyama ceramics.
