Estate of George Sugarman
Novato, CA

$10,000 to document and catalogue the work of the sculptor/painter, organized by Peter Capurso and Arden Sugarman Eliopoulos. Sugarman lived and worked in New York and created large colorful sculptures, some of which exist as wall or floor pieces. Inspired by his early interest in the compositions of Chinese painting and Matisse, Sugarman produced rhythmical pieces made from jagged geometric forms that challenged the conventions of figure-based sculpture.
