Rickey: The Early Works
importance to the art world is belied by the lack of literature
about one of the worlds most accomplished kinetic sculptors.
Rickeys fascinating sculptural oeuvre spans a fifty-three-year
working period (1949-2002) and is incredibly diverse. This book
is concerned exclusively with the early indoor sculptures from the
first 25 years of Rickeys output. With over 380 color and
black and white photos covering the artists early innovations,
we get an intimate and more complete picture of his artistic diversity
than ever before. This book lays a firm foundation to an understanding
of Rickeys creative intentions, and carefully categorizes
the works into 38 chapters. Many of the works are published here
for the first time.
