John McCracken’s Minimalist felt plank

After John McCracken’s untitled plank sculpture 1983

John McCracken explains that his art making is a slow process, His handcrafted sculptures are made from wood, then a resin is applied and the surface is polished. McCracken’s objects remind me of the Bauhaus, but he has removed the geometric matrix to its barest and what is left is a simple molecule, a square, a column, a rectangle or cube. Colour, the sculptor says is used as material, finished to its reflective and translucent properties.

The cost of the replica as shown here will cost you $230,500 at Christie’s, I rather spend it on a car.
