Fergus McCaffrey is pleased to announce the inaugural exhibition at its new location on the Caribbean island of St. Barthélemy. The show features a juxtaposition of works by Donald Judd (1928-94) and Richard Nonas (b. 1936). As aesthetic theorists and practicing sculptors, Judd and Nonas have altered the trajectory of art history in reconsidering sculptural materials and the act of installation.
Though allied by the use of simple geometric forms often in sequences or series laid out on the floor or hung on the wall, and the use of common construction materials (for Judd - metal, wood, and Plexiglas; for Nonas - stone, metal, and wood), the two artists represent divergent sculptural practices. Judd is more assertive in shaping matter to his will where Nonas adopts a more considered means.
