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.'"
- Storm King Art Center Sculpture Guide, 2015, p. 193

Sugarman's work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Walker Art Center and the Kunstmuseum.
