The present lot is similar to sculptures presented in an important 2013 exhibition by Chicago gallery Corbett vs. Dempsey, chronicling the constructions of Rodney Quiriconi created from 1960-70. As noted by John Corbett, Quiriconi's early boxes were inspired by Joseph Cornell's Surrealist sensibility, but as he continued to be drawn towards Minimalism, his sculptures were increasingly restrained and formal. He was neighbors with the idiosyncratic artist H.C. Westermann, whose use of woods directly influenced him. Quiriconi worked with many leading Chicago galleries including Dell and Phyllis kind and exhibited actively at the Hyde Park Art Center.


Minor scratches and nicks to wood, presenting well.
