On the Infinite Plane

Conrad is not simply celebrated as a lone eccentric genius, but for his lifetime contributions to community, and to education. So many of his works involved setting something up and letting it go, with no clear beginning or end. In contrast to the tight compositional control wielded by many of his contemporaries, Conrad pushed his own ego away from the center, inviting the viewer—and the natural world—to help create his art with him.
