Narrow territory, but he seems to inhabit it completely. Agree that it is all about illusion. The best for me was the work in the foreground of the top photo, though it looks completely different in real life.

But actually, and very surprisingly, there are sculptures that are emptier. Matta-Clark’s cuts make one ask why use such a heavy, obtrusive material as twine. The massiveness of things, including air, is not in any way altered or affected by sculpture as void, in either artist’s work, but Matta-Clark manages to be more economical. Does he also produce illusions? An open question. Illusion is maybe the best thing about Sandback.
