This exhibition investigates the site of the object in contemporary painting and sculpture. Current shifts in exhibition practices often cater to various digital platforms. Artists have responded to these changes, often manipulating the form and content of their work to privilege the digital image. material™ looks to the physical condition of the works presented, to the visceral qualities of three-dimensional form that escape the camera’s reach. Jacob Dutton and Thomas Weir embrace this physicality, and by extension the affective qualities of objectivity, through an investigation into the ways objects often ground our subjectivity and experiences. To view a painting by Thomas Weir is to experience the paint’s sculptural quality grossly foregrounding our view of the image. Jacob Dutton’s sculptures undermine standardized production models through a gestural approach to object-making. The works in material™ leave nothing but marks inflected with, but uncontainable by, experiences of contemporary vision oversaturated with images.
