American Minimalist sculptor Fred Sandback (1943-2003) created spare, sculptural compositions from lengths of metal or yarn stretched horizontally, vertically or diagonally in a variety of rectangular, triangular, vertical or U-shaped configurations; when installed, these produce "perceptual illusions while activating the surrounding pedestrian space," as Sandback called it. Though his sculptures have a seemingly light touch, in 1975 Sandback countered a notion that still clings to his work: "I don't make 'dematerialized art.' I complicate actual situations, and this is as material as anything else." In addition to a selection of drawings, the works documented in this well-edited monograph range from smaller-scale metal works made while Sandback was a student at Yale to later installations that engage entire rooms, demonstrating the development of his signature vocabulary of forms from 1969 to 2001.
