INSTALLATION - SEVEN ARTWORKS : VARIOUS SIZES
THE GOSS-MICHAEL FOUNDATION, DALLAS - APRIL 7th - MAY 6th 2016
Bearings Down glass box print
Bearings Down distills a landscape drawing that is magnified, rotated in space and crafted into a three-dimensional image etched on glass. This rigid plane serves as the top of the rectangular sculpture and each of the six prints on glass represent varied optical perspectives and infinite reflections of a fictitious space.
Kenny Goss, co-founder of The Goss-Michael Foundation, calls Crown’s exhibition “a striking visual experience. Impressive in scale, the individual works are slick and beautifully made, but behind the gloss lies a thoughtful commentary about how we find our way. It’s immersive and contemplative at the same time¨.
On its way to from Factum Arte to the United States the glass box was broken. From there, Paula Crown was inspired by Jackson Pollock’s splatter paintings and how movement and gravity create art. She used ball bearings to further break the glass box and display the beauty in disorder.
