MATERIAL / PROCESS / PLACE

RICHARD FLEISCHNER: Works 1963-2011

 

 

The confines of the Knoedler-Gallery obviously do not permit the actual installation of one of Richard Fleischner’s Grand Land-Projects.

 

But the photographs, sketches, & sculptures now on-view certainly do evoke his concerns with Shapes & Forms in Space, Sculpture & Architecture in Nature & in Specific-Sites.

 

Consider his small constructions, Square & Cylinder, formed of wood, wax, & paper!

 

On a much grander-scale, Fleischner’s Tufa Maze amazes visitors to Kykuit, at the Rockefeller-Estate, in Pocantico-Hills.

 

Sod Maze is installed in Newport, Rhode Island.

 

The current show includes works from his series, Lead Drawings, on loan from San Diego’s Museum of Contemporary Art.

 

Fleischner works small-scale not only in wax & wood, but also in steel, terra-cotta, bronze, & lead.

 

As the Artist says: "My work grows out of the details that I recognize & acknowledge within the Commonplace & the Universal.

 

"It is a practice that involves the juxtaposition & critical-distancing between material-interactions & placements.”

 

But you really have to SEE his Site-Specific Installations or Interventions to get a very strong Visual-Sense of what that means. Words do not suffice…
