biography


It’s the clarity that unnerves me.
The elegance,
The single mindedness of it.
The unmitigated simplicity.
I’m much happier with the idea of confusion.
Much more comfortable with ambiguity.
Much more content with unpredicted change.
They are what interest me.
Interest me because through them I touch the world.

- Richard Nonas, excerpt from [THUMP THUMP], Artforum, April 1980


L.A. Louver is pleased to present sculptures and paintings by Richard Nonas (1936-2021). A significant force in the canon of contemporary art, Nonas expanded the legacy of Minimalism into the realm of Post-Minimalism, engaging with material and site in a way that complicated and considered, rather than purported to resolve, a relationship to space and the surrounding environment. This exhibition illuminates the key preoccupations of an esoteric figure and materializes an important art historical transition.
