About this Item

Neuware - Early Work 1963-1973 brings together rarely seen works by Robert Graham, providing an overview and reconsideration of his initial engagement with Minimalism and figurative sculpture. Modelled after images on television or in popular magazines such as Life, Graham's early work comprises Plexiglas-encased environments populated by miniature wax figurines engaged in leisurely or pleasurable activities. The ethereal surfaces of these enclosures evoke the highly finished and meticulous objects associated with the Finish Fetish aesthetic, while their interior spaces suggest the geography of 1960s California as well as the modernist domestic interiors popularized by John Entenza's Case Study House Program. Over the course of his career, Robert Graham developed an exceptionally focused artistic practice preoccupied with scale and the human figure. Since the early 1970s his works have been exhibited widely at venues including the Kunstverein, Hamburg, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Graham's work is held in major museum collections and he received numerous public commissions, including the 1984 Olympic Gateway in Los Angeles and the Duke Ellington Memorial in Central Park, New York, in 1997. Born in Mexico City in 1938, Graham died in Santa Monica, California, in 2008. Co-published with David Zwirner, New York 127 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783869309859

About this title

Synopsis:

Robert Graham: Early Work 1963-1973 compiles rarely seen works by the American artist (1938-2008), providing an overview and reconsideration of Graham's initial engagement with Minimalism and figurative sculpture. Modeled after images found on television or in popular magazines, such as Life, Graham's early work presents Plexiglas-encased environments populated by miniature wax figurines engaged in leisurely or pleasurable activities. The ethereal surfaces of the artist's plastic enclosures are evocative of the highly finished and meticulous objects that have become associated with the so-called "Finish Fetish" aesthetic, and their interior spaces are suggestive of the geography of 1960s California as well as the modernist domestic interiors popularized by John Entenza's Case Study House Program.
This volume is one of the few to focus on the early period of Graham's artistic practice--one characterized by a consistent preoccupation with scale and the human figure.
