About the Work

About the Work

Bruce Nauman is an American artist. His practice spans a broad range of media including sculpture, photography, neon, video, drawing, printmaking, and performance. Life Fly Lifes Flies (Leo Castelli 90th Birthday Portfolio) is a hand-signed etching. The image size is 29.5 x 20 inches.


Leo Castelli, whose NYC gallery opened in 1957, is considered one of the most influential art dealers of the 20th century. Launching the careers of such Pop artists as Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, and Frank Stella, Castelli helped convince the world that American art of the 1960’s was worthy of international recognition.


Bruce Nauman was one of the most prominent, influential, and versatile American artists to emerge in the 1960s. Although his work is not easily defined by its materials, styles, or themes, sculpture is central to it, and it is characteristic of Post-Minimalism in the way it blends ideas from Conceptualism, Minimalism, performance art, and video art.


Nauman was awarded a Golden Lion at the 48th Venice Biennale (1999) and became a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2000. In 2004 he received a Praemium Imperiale award, presented by the Japan Art Association to “artists who have contributed significantly to the development of international arts and culture.” “Bruce Nauman: Topological Gardens,” featuring works from throughout his career, was awarded a Golden Lion at the 2009 Venice Biennale.
