Artist Reception: April 20, 2019 | 3 – 6pm
INTRUSION explores the Intrusion of form into the surrounding architectural space and the interaction asks you to consider the objects which are placed in context with the structure. The viewer is asked to construct the relationship between themselves and the architectural space.
The objects make no distinction between line and edge making it possible to visualize the form as a hole cut into space or as form presented in front of the space. The onlooker is invited to go beyond the image and walk about and view the newly defined and delineated space determined by architectural factors
Making an object requires that you organize the structure. Everything that exists takes up space. The Intrusion factor is the basis of the unnaturalness found in all art. INTRUSION uses the common art denominators: density, rigidity, opacity, uniformity and geometric shapes to build a relationship of the objects to the architectural space of the gallery. Observers are asked to go beyond the objects and construct a relationship between themselves, the objects and the architectural space.
“…what is most important is what an artist does, rather than what he is, what the object does—in terms of response—rather than what it is.” Gregory Battcock Minimal Art a Critical Anthology, 1968
The spectator must infer the meaning from contextual clues.
