Caprice Pierucci Opening Reception- Currents and Cycles
May 7, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Callan Contemporary is pleased to present Currents and Cycles, our third solo exhibition by sculptor Caprice Pierucci. With their sinuous forms and progressive visual rhythms, the sculptures evoke the fluidity of water and graduated shapes alluded to in the show’s title. A minimalist simplicity informs these artworks, fashioned from pine wood and water-based paints and born of Pierucci’s time- and process- intensive technique. Their components converge like pieces of a complex puzzle, conceived and edited during an improvisational dialogue with materials, which she adds and subtracts from elegant, porous compositions. The forms, along with the intricate shadows they cast, appear to morph and undulate as viewers move around the sculptures, lending a sense of dynamism, kinesthetics, and interactivity. Whether free-standing, wall-mounted, or hanging, the pieces do not just exist in space; they activate it.
