One hundred-and-fifty black-and-white photographs from the New York studio of Richard Nonas taken by the artist.
One hundred-and-fifty black-and-white photographs from the New York studio of Richard Nonas taken by the artist reveal his working world and make this book a sculptural site in its own right. In the studio finished works, works in progress, elements, materials, tools and objects all come together. The artist's anthropological past is present in this lair and clearly informs his work as a sculpture.
"Almost clarity about no quite confusion is what I want. – Dissonance is what I want. The dissonance of place, not thing; the dissonance of intersecting conflicting objects (...). This book is the fieldwork for that."
Richard Nonas (1936-2021) was a major figure in American post-minimalism
