Plastic Mouthfeel II – Dan Arps 4 March – 4 April 2015
As its title suggests, “Plastic Mouthfeel II,” the latest exhibition from New Zealand artist Dan Arps, is a space full of viscous forms, loaded with colors and textures, that causes a constant sense of elastic deformation. Take, for example, Studio Units with Double Hamper (2015), a set of five white but unclean folding trestle tables, located at the center of the gallery, on top of and around which an uncustomary arrangement of disparate objects and detritus invites careful examination.
