HOLLIS TAGGART GALLERIES, NEW YORK
Novembre 17 through December 17, 2011
Hollis Taggart Galleries is pleased to present the first New York show of Pablo Atchugarry’s marble sculpture. The Uruguayan-born artist, who lives and works in Lecco, Italy, works with marble and bronze to create pieces that are both elegant and imposing. No undertaking is too daunting for him—from the 2003 Venice Biennale installation representing Uruguay, to the private commission of a five-story high sculpture hewn from a single block of Carrara marble, to the more intimately scaled works on view in the gallery. In white Carrara marble, and pink Portugal and Iran marbles, these pieces fold, layer, and undulate. Atchugarry effectively works the medium to appear both weightless and substantial.
