Art in the Hamptons: ”Something about the confluence of fantastic natural beauty and the solitude it offers is magnetically attractive to those artists who rely on an isolated process of expression to create their work.”

Throwback Thursday: “It is said that stone is the affection of old men. That may be so. It is the most challenging to work. A dialogue ensues – of chance no chance, mistakes no mistakes. No erasing or reproduction is possible, at least in the way I work, leaving nature’s mark. It is unique and final.” – Isamu Noguchi

Isamu Noguchi’s solo exhibition, Beginnings and Ends, was on view at Pace Gallery twenty years ago, in 1994. The exhibition included two stone sculptures and a marble sculpture. The artist’s works can still be appreciated today at the internationally renowned Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, which he founded and designed before his death in 1988.
