Philip Pavia Trust
New York, NY

$7,000 toward Philip Pavia: Works 1930-2005, a publication produced by John Isaacs Books, edited by trust director Natalie Edgar with an introduction by art historian Gerald Nordland. Primarily known as the founder of “The Club,” a group of artists in New York City that formed the melting pot of ideas related to Abstract Expressionism, Pavia was a sculptor in his own right and did not begin showing until after he retired from the group. Pavia created primarily abstract forms from carved marble that, arranged in a seemingly scattered and casual way, explored the “velocity” of stream of consciousness.
