The gifted sculptor Christopher Wilmarth, who died young, and tragically, by his own hand at the age of 44, maintains a poetic presence in this excellent show of seven sculptures and eight drawings.

Christopher Wilmarth: Sculpture and Drawings from the 1970s, a gallery-scale retrospective at Craig F. Starr, includes seven sculptures and seven drawings. At the start of his career, Wilmarth (1943-1989) was a studio assistant for Tony Smith. Then he came of age as an artist in the 1970s, in the era of Minimalism. That said, his work, with its conjunction of steel cable and etched glass plates, is devilishly difficulty to place, for it’s not much like anyone else’s.
