Gelah Penn

Realform Space
2005-05-01

Curated by David Gibson This installation might make you re-string your thinking about the possibilities of drawing. Contained within the display, window Penn uses mundane materials like fishing line and vinyl lanyards to create webs that divide and demark the volumetric space. The skeins of Pollock are actualized in three dimensions, with spiraling knotted tangles of synthetically tinted line that range coloristicly from faint lime green to grape soda to shinny black. Fine lines tie into thick, jutting lines pause to meander in decorative swirls and thickets. Perhaps one of the most pragmatically provocative uses of this unique space yet.
