I had already received the opinion that sculptures are things that are supposed to stand firm. That was the conceptual framework through which people traditionally viewed sculpture. And my purpose in presenting Tardiology was to say, “There’s another way.” —Hitoshi Nomura
McCaffrey Fine Art is proud to present Hitoshi Nomura: Marking Time. This is Nomura’s second exhibition at the gallery, and it will open with a reception for the artist from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, September 14.
Nomura’s work remains virtually unknown in the United States, yet it represents an unwritten chapter in the rich international dialogue of art after minimalism. His explorations of the interface between man and matter have manifested themselves in photography, film, sculpture, and performance. Since he began his career in 1968, Nomura’s work has defied easy categorization as he has continued to push the accepted boundaries of art, most recently extending his practice into the realms of science and astronomy.
