> DESCRIPTION

 

Monarch Studio is pleased to announce an exhibition
showcasing a group of mechanical objects by sculpture artist Dan Grayber.
Dan Grayber creates mechanical objects that are intricately designed to resolve their own
problems or shortcomings.  They are intricately designed and fabricated to accomplish one of
the most simple, yet most essential tasks that an autonomous object can. This task, this need,
is that of holding itself up.  In most cases, the pieces accomplish this by actively attaching
themselves to specific architectural features and individual objects.
“Objects are invented in order to satisfy particular needs, specifically, human needs. With my sculpture I investigate the concept of need when the human is removed from this equation.
I do this by replacing the human with the object itself.” - Dan Grayber
Dan Grayber received his BA in Visual Arts from Hampshire College, and his MFA in Sculpture
from the San Francisco Art Institute. He was the recipient of the Harold E. Weiner Memorial Award. Dan lives and works in San Francisco.
