SPONSOR: Chicago Sculpture Exhibit

David Noguchi feels that sculpture is one of the purest forms of nonverbal communication. Noguchi’s works, inspired by the Modern era of abstract sculpture, are minimal and concise. If the meaning from one of Noguchi’s works were to be translated to text, the message would be short, but clear.
 
The title of Noguchi’s work displayed here may offer precisely that translation. “Soar” says everything the piece wants to express. The silver sculpture captures a figure already in flight, aloft upon glimmering wings, pared down to its essential parts and placed upon a platform. “Soar” is a pure and keen view of action that excites its viewer’s imagination to join in flight.
