is known for his intimately scaled sculptures, each made up of ceramic elements that are slip-cast, fired, and embellished with epoxy details. Some are glazed to a hot-rod finish, others textured like stucco and then airbrushed. Despite the work’s three-dimensionality, Nagle explains, “everything is done, even subconsciously, from a flat point of view.” Nagle was born in San Francisco in 1939. He began working with ceramics during the 1950s as a high school student. In 1961 he apprenticed to Peter Voulkos at the University of California, Berkeley, and later exhibited his work alongside Voulkos, Ken Price, and other innovative West Coast artists working in clay. His work is inspired by such artists as Giorgio Morandi, Phillip Guston, and George Herriman, and by such varied forms as Japanese Momoyama ceramics and Hawaiian funerary monuments.

'Presenting large-scale installations that resemble elements of nature under a microscope and cell-like forms or organisms from the depths of the ocean, Donovan’s body of work derives from recognisable everyday items, such as Scotch Tape, drinking straws, paper-plates, needles, plastic rods and toothpicks. The artist often uses thousands of identical items repeated to produce forms that resemble expansive reflections of nature. The items are stacked, glued, cut and assembled until an alchemy is realised, producing a majestic installation. What often appears as precious stones or minerals in Donovan’s work often turns out to be common materials such as plastic buttons or polyester film, such as in Untitled (Mylar), a freestanding sculpture that will be presented in The Steadings Gallery as part of Donovan’s expansive presentation at Jupiter Artland.'
