Luce Center Quote

“I have the feeling [the] sculpture made itself and I was there mainly to implement its taking place.” Richard Hollander, 1987

Luce Center Label

Richard Hollander was nicknamed “Edge Man” for his obsessive filing and sanding of the sheet metal used in his sculptures. His pieces from the 1970s and early 1980s explore simple geometric shapes and often evoke machines. Stack Pot employs four separate pieces of hollow steel that fit together to create a towering vessel.
