This event has ended.

Jeremy Comins' fluid, organic sculpture, deftly carved from rich woods-with the occasional addition of bronze-explores humanity's relationship to nature, as well as the complexities of human psychology. Inspired by observing rock climbers in Red Rock Canyon, Nevada, imagining how a figure would climb through his own carved forms, as well as mining the metaphor of returning home to safety, the series encompasses free-standing and wall-mounted works.

As Roberta Smith noted in her New York Times review of Comins' work, it invokes an "easy sophistication and palpable integrity and an almost infallible sense of touch, scale and composition." His use of cherry, pine and mahogany wood is complimented by his master craftsmanship. Each piece presents a perfectly sanded smooth surface, possessing a human skin-like quality to the touch. Smith concludes that Comin's works "would do any museum proud."
