This event has ended.
＊In keeping with the evolving guidance from public health officials aimed at inhibiting the spread of COVID-19, Blum & Poe will temporarily close to the public beginning from Tuesday, March 17 until further notice.
Paloma Bosquê creates compositions of various formats and scales that freely associate materials which are not typical of sculpture. Experimenting with the texture, weight, and balance of a wide variety of materials—from brass to felt, bronze, coal, gum rosin, bee’s wax, beef casing, craft paper, coffee sieves, and wool—she creates extremely delicate visual landscapes.
Dark Matter refers to a form of matter whose existence has been hypothesized since the beginning of the twentieth century but has never been empirically proven. This exhibition presents a new body of wall and floor pieces, including freestanding compositions that incorporate hanging elements.
Through her practice of exploring and cultivating interchange between herself and the materials she composes into final forms, Bosquê’s work results from what she calls “an agreement which could transform both of us, and the space surrounding us.”
