Justin Matherly Exhibition

Paula Cooper Gallery "529 W 21st St."

This event has ended.

Known for his large-scale cast concrete sculptures referencing Hellenistic or Roman statuary, Matherly presents new small-scale abstract works. Elements from crutches and walkers are cut, reassembled, and contorted into various shapes, with cast concrete forms accreting around the metal and acting as misshapen connectors or nodes. In a departure from his recent work, Matherly expands his use of color as an expressive element. The works suggest a tension between line and volume, painting and sculpture, the industrial and the organic.

Also on view are monoprints that form a record of Matherly’s research into political, historical, and art historical crosscurrents, with influences as diverse as Greek mythology, Suprematism, music, and American pop culture.
