Ron Nagle is known for his intimately scaled sculptures made of ceramic elements that are slip-cast, fired, and embellished with epoxy and other synthetic materials that allow him to expand his forms beyond the limits of clay. Evoking otherworldly landscapes or surreal architectural arrangements, Nagle’s inventive works elicit a vast range of associations. “The thing you want people to feel,” Nagle has said, “is something they haven’t felt before.” An exhibition of eighteen new sculptures and six related drawings is on view at 523 West 24th Street through October 23.
