DESCRIPTION

In his first U.S. museum solo show, Dallas-based artist Stephen Lapthisophon investigates how language and mark-making are linked to the formation of self-identity. His installations incorporate everyday objects such as furniture and foodstuffs as a means to break down the barriers between the work of art and daily life. The inclusion of food materials such as rosemary, saffron, or bacon fat mixed with pigments challenges ideas of permanence, skill, and process as they relate to art making. For Concentrations 56: Stephen Lapthisophon—coffee, seasonal fruit, root vegetables, and “Selected Poems," the artist will create a series of tableaus incorporating anachronistic objects with more recent works on paper. The gallery will feature architectural elements inspired by his studio space: exposed wood beams and drywall create a visual layering of space and materials. The DMA’s Concentrations series began in 1981 and presents project-based solo exhibitions by international emerging artists.
