The Estate of George Sugarman


"The elaborate shapes, both delicate and dense, recall the Baroque art that impressed George Sugarman during his first travels in Europe. Later Sugarman noted, 'All throughout the '60s and '70s I had no label. I wasn't Pop. I wasn't Mininmal. And 'Maximal' was a word that wasn't used. Yet I was a Maximalist. I wanted to put everything in my work, even the kitchen sink.'"
