Brohemus and I hit…
the Convergence show today at…
that was curated by Suzanne Luke.
Ed Pien’s “Revolution”. Awesome concept meets Christie MicroTiles. Sweet.
Ryan Price’s drawings are hauntingly beautiful. Dave White acquired one of Ryan’s drawings years ago and I always loved it. Super cool to see more of the work and all together.
Hmmm, wall-writing at The Hub. I’ll be darned.
Gareth Lichty’s piece “Hamper’” really blows my hair back. The picture in The Record, shot from above, didn’t really give me the scale of it. It is massive. Eighteen feet across. What’s not obvious from stand-off pictures is the different texture across the top and…
side. This profile curve intrigued me, so I asked Gareth if it was due to uneven tension in wrapping the coil. Not really, it turns out. The curve at the side is due to the small deltas introduced by manufacturing tolerances of the fence being amplified by the many wraps. Now that’s cool. Gareth described some of the thinking behind the piece: construction fence as a barrier, Hamper as a barrier between The Hub doors and the other doors across the courtyard. I thought about the half-life decay of this construction fence vis a vis (and I never use that phrase) the brick structure surrounding it. Which will persist longer on a long time scale?
Artists and curator responsibly looking at the real photographer.
Having missed Johannes Zits performance art at Steel Rails and now this time at The Hub, I’m hoping the third time is a charm.
Soheila, rockin the glass.
But first: Gareth’s auxiliary name tag FTW!
Check out this show. Runs through to Dec 3.
