Jason Adkins, Flamethrower, 2008, wood, oil lacquer, clear coating, MDF cage: 37” x 37” x 47” pallet: 47” x 47” x 8”.

Western Project is proud to present the exhibition, SCULPTURE, in two separate exhibitions. The first part features four distinct sensibilities. Jason Adkins’ cage sculptures refer to cargo, confinement and minimalist aesthetics. Tanya Batura’s exquisite ceramic works are portraits of the unvarnished subconscious; both disturbing and serene. Heimir Björgúlfsson sees nature and culture as inseparable in his enigmatic found object works. Michael Dee’s flaming red Mylar sculptures are melted monuments atop cardboard boxes, revealing the candor and transience of beauty and emotion. The collision of methodologies in this exhibition produces a chorus of inquiry as to the possibilities of manifestation.
