To wrap, to pour, to scatter, to pull, to cut, to drape -Richard Serra

Break it, stretch it, bend it, crush it, crack it, fold it. -Bruce Mau

Working in a wide range of materials and processes, these nine emerging artists closely adhere to a post-minimalist sensibility. They’ve set out on a path of discovery looking for the existent possibilities in the ordinary and mundane, the discarded and overlooked.

Through the transformation of such things as plaster, masking tape, glue, crushed cans, clay, newspaper, rubber, human skin, plastic bags, chicken wire, plexiglass, and old car parts we get glimpses of the personal and political with works that address issues concerning identity, contemporary culture, and wonders of the natural world.
