Chromaform: color in sculpture

Front Cover
UTSA Art Gallery, University of Texas at San Antonio, 1998 - Art - 55 pages
In its exhilarating rebound into three dimensions, color is asserting itself with a forcefulness not seen since the 1960s. The sculptures in Chromaform: Color in Sculpture are not merely colored but are of and about color as much as they are about materials and space, the more traditional concerns of sculptors. Whether applied, stained, cast, or found, color plays an essential role in all this work, which cares as much for the decorative and sexual as it does for the formal potential of color. Sculpture in the 1990s, as the artists seen here make evident, embraces the perceptual union of color and form. Addressing the formal, conceptual, and metaphorical functions of color in sculpture, the works in this book reveal diverse results, limitless possibilities, and a shift toward a more interdisciplinary art.
