Robert Hudson: New Sculptures and Drawings
April 1 – 29, 1989
During April, the Frumkin/Adams Gallery will show a group of new steel sculptures and works on paper by Robert Hudson. The sculptures are a departure for Hudson in that the works use much less paint than previously and the major steel components are much less ambiguous. The new works on paper, on the other hand, follow more closely along the lines of Hudson’s earlier, intensely colorful drawings and represent variations on motifs found in the sculptures.
The steel sculptures consist of five large scale works ranging from a powerfully abstract “Steel Knot” with large unpainted steel forms to “Balance,” which comments on the nuclear arms race. “Trap Door” is a severe steel structure from which hangs an assortment of found and manipulated objects. The other two works on view combine “found” steel objects with welded steel forms.
The Robert Hudson exhibition will run from April 1st to the 29th. The Frumkin/Adams Gallery is open from 10 to 6, Tuesday through Friday and from 10 to 5:30 on Saturdays.
