John Rogers Clague (b. 1928, Cleveland OH; d. 2004)

John Rogers Clague is known for using light, color, and high polish to create patterns that shift from different viewpoints. Here he explores the textual possibility of bronze. Parts of the sculpture comprise a smooth, golden surface which contrasts with dark, textured areas. Viewers are encouraged to rotate the plates of this sculpture, transforming the work with each alteration and creating new relationships between light and space, and between the sculpture and its environment. 

Bequest of Lawrence H. Bloedel, Class of 1923, to Williams College Museum of Art. 77.9.105.

Located at Field Farm.
