Capricious Alignment features immersive textile prints and polychrome aluminum sculptures. Order, decoration, and color create a dynamic psychology of space. The viewer’s perceptual experience is heightened by the sequential nature of both the tapestries and open grid structures. The juxtaposition of repeating floral environments alongside minimalist sculpture open a dialogue between the dualist ideologies of order and chaos. The sculptures and textile environments question the traditional signs of stability and architectural material hierarchy. Boundaries between exterior and interior are rendered fluid and playful. Other references include Japanese rituals of dress and space making, Fascist fashion, Russian Constructivism, and Italian Futurism. Careful measurement in sculpture, textile tapestries, and garments create intimate spaces that at once define and expand.

Opening Friday February 3, Carl Solway Gallery.
