‘LATERAL DRIFT’ NARS FOUNDATION GALLERY
october 16th – november 13th 2015 i will be exhibiting my solo show ‘lateral drift’ at nars foundation gallery in brooklyn, new york. opening reception and artist talk will commence on october 16th, 2015 come by or come buy.
this show aims to invite the viewer into this dreamscape and offer a view of the artist building off of preexisting work and all of the messy, unsure, and exuberant energy that goes into it. creating an environment that ties back to home, or nostalgia, the scene will be set to disturb preconceived notions of what is foreign and what is known. with a record player softly turning chords that reflect a strange but comfortable mood, worn wooden chairs to rest your feet, and a plastic drying rack holding a bodily but alien form; the viewer’s senses are tested and amplified from the moment they hit the door. viewers are permitted and encouraged to flex their voyeuristic temptations as they dive deep into surreal territory and watch the inhabitant of this foreign land. quietly moving from scene to scene and set with my tripod in one hand and a rubber prop in the other, i continue my work. learning as i forage for different angles, my understanding of my work is constantly evolving. as i move among my sculptures, creating and capturing new relationships will both bring the viewer into real time and demystify the artistic process.
my work is so interconnected to my core self that i find the negative spaces and cavities i create have been shaped to my own form working around them. the colours i so carefully concoct are based on recurring dreams, with their companion textures mimicking sensory pleasures from childhood. sharing my work is ultimately the most genuine of gestures, my true and unencumbered mind in tangible form.
