Dimensions, take 2

Got the opportunity to show a simultaneously scaled up and scaled down version of Dimensions at Attic 506 in Chapel Hill, which is truly a gem for the Triangle- artist-run and focused, always scrappy and always weird.

This iteration is “scaled up” in the sense that these are much larger iterations of the cube installations than anything I’ve shown publicly to date (larger than human-size) and “scaled down” because this exhibit only features the installation work and not paintings or assemblages. The space that was available was also ideal for this work, with the proximity to the work by viewers being super compressed.

I’m including some detail shots below which I hope underscore that I do think of these physical cubes as proxies for brushstrokes, and the compositions as proxies for painting (after art is dead). There’s also a stop action animation of the install for the piece top left above at the bottom of this gallery- nothing is planned about these compositions. Yes, many of the aspects are chosen in advance (IE I have some rules) such as color and obviously shape. They are also temporary or time-limited- these 2 works will only exist in this configuration in this space and once the exhibit is done, they will be disassembled. To be a part of the experience of the work, you have to be present.
