Robert Sagerman at Marcia Wood


Marcia Wood Gallery is exhibiting work by Robert Sagerman in Atlanta through December 30, 2022. His process is described thusly:

Using intensely colored paint that he mixes himself, Sagerman adds “mark” upon “mark” of thick paint to create a painting as much as 3 inches deep and made up of thousands of marks, resulting in work that crosses boundaries between painting and sculpture. The color field paintings are painstakingly documented as they are created by the artist, who counts and records each mark of each color and the time spent applying them. The titles of the final paintings represent the total number of marks
