“Delicate Things” by Alex Ozers

OZERS04

Alright, you lucky ducks– isn’t this a treat!? These are shots of Alex Ozer’s exhibition “Delicate Things”…. in the making! How often do you get to go on studio visits? Have the chance to see artwork ‘in process’ and get a glimpse into the layers, the decisions, the careful building of a whole? Nothing in front of you here is complete, because, well, you can come by and see it hanging on our wall in its fully-realized form. (This, folks, is what you’d call a teaser!) Nothing equates to seeing art, especially art this textural, in person, right?

These pieces feature painting, weaving, metal casts, wood assemblage, and found natural objects, organized in a fashion that suggests ideas of the mystic, ritual, and relic. Ozer’s choice to levitate some of the forms  in the space in front of the wood plank, away from the wall, draws attention to the solidity and object-ness of these parts, and bring us to the proper state to consider weight and weightlessness, the solid and the ephemeral, the natural and the designed.

If you’d like a chance to chat about any of the varied processes within the work with the artist himself, this Friday night, February 7th, we host a reception from 7pm-9pm. The exhibition will remain on view through the end of February.
