Shifting the Everyday
The exhibition focuses on the impact and shift in relationships as a result of re-appropriating new materials and incorporating unexpected inspirations in art. The exhibition spotlights Los Angeles artist David Jang. Also on view is a new series of artworks by Los Angeles artist Barbara Kolo among many others.
David Jang's work utilizes materials and object-making to articulate the countervailing forces inherent in the everyday—expansion and contraction, perfection and imperfection, force and balance, have and have not. His process can be described as an exacting, fanciful, even obsessive re-appropriation of common materials—one in which he deconstructs, re-programs and re-constitutes industrial and commercial cast-offs to reveal new relationships between the object and the viewer.
