Conner Contemporary Art is very pleased to present concurrent solo exhibitions by three gallery artists: Jeremy Kost, Taylor Baldwin and Matthew Sutton.
In "Living Fossil," sculptures and drawings by Conner/*gogo artist, Taylor Baldwin, explore personal, economic, and environmental relationships between people and objects. The artist explains, "The role I see for my objects and installations is of creating actual physical anomalies: finding the point where the physical world oscillates between raw material and known form, familiarity and disorientation." Baldwin sculpts familiar forms, such as chainsaws or skulls, out of various matter that he finds, salvages, barters, or steals. Inherent in his complex amalgams are material histories, anecdotes, and provenances, which posit a problematic framework of transaction and ownership.
Baldwin's sculpture "The Sun Never Sets" will be featured at the opening of new permanent space at the Tucson Museum of Contemporary Art, Tucson, AZ in March 2010.
There will be an opening night reception, Saturday, January 16th from 6 to 8pm. Artists in attendance.
Jeremy Kost performance + after-party at The Rubell Family's Capitol Skyline Hotel (video lounge), January 16th: 9pm -until. rsvp essential.
