Holding sentry over the exhibition are three “Bodyguards” (one shown above). The pieces are more than six feet tall each and were crafted from inflated aerospace aluminum. The highly polished metal reflects the surroundings while the rents in the material pattern the walls with shapes of light. Any good guard will tell you that their job is to see everything and filter the data.
Some of the works serve practical functions like the bookcase “Oh the farmer & the cowman should be friends” (above) and the chair “Thumbprint” (below). The gallery extols the sensation of touch with some of these pieces so stop by and cop a feel.
