More than three decades of multiples from Bruce Nauman are on view at James Kelly Contemporary in Santa Fe.
Bruce Nauman, Normal Desires, lithograph, 1973.
Four types of printing techniques are on display. The lithographs and serigraphs were utilized to reproduce some of the wordplay found in Nauman’s neon work while drypoint and etching approaches were used to execute his drawings for sculpture.
Bruce Nauman, Untitled (Ring), cast iron with grit blast surface, 1986.
Two sculptures and a video are also included in “Pay Attention”. The artist has resided in New Mexico since the 1980’s, it is good to see him giving the locals a broad view of his work.
