Early Work 1963–1973 brings together rarely seen works by Robert Graham, providing an overview and reconsideration of his initial engagement with Minimalism and figurative sculpture.

Modelled after images on television or in popular magazines such as Life, Graham’s early work comprises Plexiglas-encased environments populated by miniature wax figurines engaged in leisurely or pleasurable activities.

The ethereal surfaces of these enclosures evoke the highly finished and meticulous objects associated with the “Finish Fetish” aesthetic, while their interior spaces suggest the geography of 1960s California as well as the modernist domestic interiors popularized by John Entenza’s Case Study House Program.
