CEPA Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by artist Rebecca Wing at Big Orbit Project Space. Wing’s work shares a common curiosity about the ways that functional objects necessitate specific forms.
While loosely referencing the structures and textures of specialized construction, agricultural, military, and aerospace vehicles, the work remains devoted to the ambiguous poetics of form and space. The work leans towards three-dimensionality but often employs thin planes and flat surfaces. In the nebulous space between sculpture and two-dimensional processes, the evidence of an armature acts as a foil for its flimsy or misshapen skin. Aggravated by their dubious stability, the frozen kinetic potential of the work attempts to capture a mysterious moment on the verge of happening.
