James Carl: Recent Works
James Carl‘s meticulous yet spare reconfigurations of found and everyday objects volley between form and content — aesthetic play and aesthetic function. Common materials and common objects. Even with Carl’s precise and over-determined reconstruction loss occurs: three dimensions collapse into two, details vanish, round is just a line. One can never replace/reproduce the other just create a lull.
As part of this solo exhibition, Carl will present a series of line drawings based on various collected bottles. The drawings have also been converted into a downloadable graphic font, “Content”. A book co-published by Art Metropole and Mercer Union with a mac and pc compatible CD will be available at the gallery.
