Richard Rezac’s works explore the sculptural logic of geometry and the elusive mechanisms of interpretation. Rather than signifying complex systems like these through symbolism or simple illustration, Rezac creates sculptures that enact them through their precisely determined construction and positioning in space.
Here the Chicago-based artist presents new, old, and reworked pieces spanning his last decade of production. In its presentation, Address is attentive to the nuances of the gallery’s neo-gothic architecture.
