Zoya Tommy Gallery presents "Moth To The Flame" opening reception
"Moth To The Flame" by Houston-based sculptor and metal worker James Ciosek aims to explore the nature of reality and perception, to question people's role as generators and arbiters of what may be an entirely holographic existence. Ciosek’s sculptures pose as an inkblot test for the viewer, exploiting the tendency of the eye to find figurative elements where none were intended. Re-enforcing the idea that we regularly see things that are simply not there.
"Moth to the Flame" will present two and three dimensional pieces that explore new surface treatments- such as high voltage wood burning and ink blown around with compressed air. These techniques produce novel patterns that are sympathetic with the rest of the artist’s body of work and have encouraged him to consider a more painterly approach. James Ciosek will unveil new works from his current series “Opalescent Order” as well as large scale lighted sculptures from his suite titled “Constructed Chaos.”
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 26.
