Richard Nonas is interested in the idea that space isn't given, but made, and that only the relations between objects make a room feel how it feels. His current show at Fergus McCaffrey includes, among other works, an installation of logs arranged neatly in rows on the floor. They are relatively unrefined, and look as if they came directly from the lumberyard. The rugged quality of the work chimes with the narrative of Nonas's development — he was a field anthropologist in Canada and Mexico before he took up sculpture at age thirty. His pieces are simple and clear, which are virtues; this is his second show at the gallery.
