Richard Artschwager, the American painter and sculptor, has always been hard to categorize. In the sixties, he was neither a Pop artist nor a Minimalist, although he was often discussed in the contexts of both. By the 1980s, however, his work seemed extremely prophetic of the emerging Neo-Geo generation. His use of formica, for example--a synthetic simulacrum of wood--found an echo in a younger group of "postmodern" artists who were interested in critiquing "nature" and "originality," among other bromides of received wisdom. This is a well-illustated survey of his work.
