This event has ended.

Fridman Gallery presents MULTIPOLARITY, Reuven Israel’s first solo exhibition in New York.

Composed of highly finished elements of various shapes, sizes and colors that are “skewered” onto metal rods, the sculptures initially lure the viewer to ascribe to them a function or purpose. At second glance, however, we realize that these objects resist categorization, do not serve any familiar function and cannot be defined using existing vocabulary.

Israel thus has created a universe in which objects are made real (i.e., independent of us and other objects) by their own central “poles” and surface qualities, rather than by any context or cognition imposed by the viewer. The objects express their quirky individuality through the vibrant finishes, kinetic shapes and contrasting juxtaposition of their elements.
