About

Ron Nagle (b. 1939) is an American sculptor, musician, and songwriter. Nagle is best known for his small-scale sculptures incorporating technically skilled and highly expressive shapes, textures, and colors. Nagle's sculptures are often associated with the California Clay Movement, or American Clay Revolution, a school of ceramic art that emerged in California in the 1950s which sought to elevate ceramics from craft to fine art. Ron Nagle’s first solo exhibition was in 1968 at Dilexi Gallery in San Francisco. Since then, his work has been exhibited extensively, including solo exhibitions at the Saint Louis Art Museum, Carnegie Museum of Art, San Diego Museum of Art, and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Thirty of Nagle’s ceramics were included in the exhibition “The Encyclopedic Palace,” curated by Massimiliano Gioni for the 55th Venice Biennale. The above sculpture was exhibited at Gagosian Geneva in 2018 in the group exhibition "FIRE AND CLAY: Sylvie Auvray, Shio Kusaka, Takuro Kuwata, Grant Levy-Lucero, Ron Nagle, Sterling Ruby, Peter Voulkos, Betty Woodman."
