At a ti me when ‘mixed media’ has become a blanket with which to cover and obscure the formerly well-defined and hard-fought realms of sculpture\, painting an d installation\, any working definition of medium becomes both abstruse and all-inclusive. Rather than abide complacently within the abyss of nameless ness\, ‘THE FACE OF THE SHAPE’ will showcase a new era of sculpture\, one t hat does\, in fact\, mix media to explore form\, but also embraces each dim ension\, of space and of concept\, more fully\, in contour\, craft and narr ative\, than its recent predecessors. To highlight the success both of the gallery and of the pioneering practices of a select group of artists\, La S catola is pleased to present ‘THE FACE OF THE SHAPE’.

By allowin g paint to perform\, Sarah Tew sculpts the evolution of colour and of portr ait. Steven Morgana’ s use of light as object and surface as a point of wel l-defined deflection results in effervescent\, fluid formations. Ironic as shape on display\, the nature of nature is transformed by Daniel Eatock thr ough his synthesis and [dis]ambiguation of sight and symbol. Balint Bolygo assembles his machines at the point where art and science meet. As a way of defining the many shapes that ghosts\, of soul and of practice\, inhabit\, Russell Maurice alchemically melds figure into a mythical\, immediately-re al afterlife.

Rebecca Ackroyd\, through blueprint and three-dime nsional body\, addresses the geometry of shape and the converse. Hannah Cat herine Jones uses sculpture as a site for performance\, and performance as the setting for spontaneous unknowns. Blue Curry\, in their assemblages of bulb-bases and beans\, make things into other things. Hirofumi Isoya hangs light from light\, giving shape to dangling particles. Lisa Selby’ s cerami cs\, both found and personally fabricated\, reshape taste. Jukhee Kwon’ s s patial transformations expand and shrink space and what it momentarily and permanently contains.

Gyeong Yoon An’s deconstruction of icons q uestions history\, of sculpture and of humanity\, by interrogating personal narration. Between light and dark\, tangible and ungraspable\, Richard Sto ne installs his spaceless sculptures where boundaries creep into their own limitlessness. In her exploitation of material and shape\, Rowena Harris ma kes formal demands of abstraction. Equipped with an inventor’ s sense of th e experiment\, Dominic Wilcox tests the constraints of found objects agains t manmade motivations. Sharp as much as they are shaggy\, Alicja Pytlewska and Fabio Lattanzi Antinori ’s forms adjust and disrupt his viewer’ s focus with their impossible silhouettes. Kentaro Yamada’ s use of energy mimics the human body’s appropriations of air and the subsequent respirations. Ron in Cho communicates through a spirited fabrication of technology and mechan ical inspiration.
Although each artist’ s young ouevre is individually intriguing\, it is the ambition of this group show to accentuate the new c ourse that they are taking sculpture in. Whilst unable and unwilling to lab el the astounding differences between each featured artists’ aspirations\, this show presents a common vision of expression through sculpture. Please join us as the gallery and the artists welcome the new directions shaping t he future of form.

During the Private View\, we will present a p erformance with artist Hannah Catherine Jones and a collaborative performan ce with artists Danielle Valz Gen and Tal Regev.
