Post-Studio Project art opening reception: Energy Cache and the Imagined Promise by Robert Harrington
Using mass-produced objects and ordinary materials reconfigured into an art context, Roerbt Harrington's work looks at how we might individualize or personalize things that are inherently not produced to be individual. Through drawings and actualized inventions that imply a function, he explores themes that include the idea of objects' potential and the concepts of what could be versus what is.
Energy Cache and the Imagined Promise explores perceived notions of tension and energy using sculptures, drawings and collages.
Robert Jackson Harrington creates drawings and sculptural installations from everyday materials that center on the concept of potential. Recent exhibitions include Con/Juntos in the Mexic-Arte Museum, Austin, and Goodly/Wicked at grayDUCK gallery in Austin. Currently he directs the Museum of Pocket Art and is a member of the Center for Experimental Practice. His work will be included in the forthcoming Oak Cliff Society of Fine Art Turner House group exhibition, 2014 Rising Star, scheduled to open in Dallas this fall.
On view through Oct. 4.
