“One day I held up two pieces of wood, pushed them together and, incredibly, they conveyed strong and specific emotion. It was identifiable emotion but with no story explaining it, a disembodied emotion I could not fathom or explain. I felt like I had been hit on the head with a hammer. I realized all at once that it might be possible to communicate abstract emotion and ideas directly with objects, instead of indirectly with language.” — Richard Nonas (“Richard Nonas with Alex Bacon,” Brooklyn Rail, March 4, 2013.)
An exhibition of work by Richard Nonas will be on view at Fergus McCaffrey from September 10–October 25, 2014.
