Lot Details

Woodcut in black and red on Japan, signed lower right: Bruce Naumann and described lower left: Roster. The work is framed (24 x 51 cm) and in a very good condition.

Bruce Nauman (B. 1941, Fort Wayne, Indiana) is a contemporary American artist who works with a multitude of media including sculpture, photography, neon, video, drawing, printmaking, and performance. His work is characterized by a fascination with language, often playfully manipulating ubiquitous sayings and phrases in a mischievous manner. Through his artwork, he explores the nature of language’s inherent problems and the importance of communication in our everyday existence. Focused more on the process or activity that transforms or creates a piece of art, Nauman examines life in “all its gory details” creatively mapping the human language that aims to express the meaning of life, death, politics, beauty, and faith. Nauman was chosen to be the US representative for the 2009 Venice Biennale.
