This event has ended.

Rachel Uffner Gallery presents Puff Pieces, a group exhibition curated by Feelings. Through the paintings and sculptures of Lynda Benglis, John Chamberlain, Samara Golden, Guy Goodwin, Sam Moyer, Jayson Musson, Erwin Wurm, and new works by Justin Adian, the show serves
as a singular consideration of puffy forms, and a species of puff piece itself.

Puff pieces put up a soft front. Buoyed by a subjective view, these articles’ inflated accounts forgo neutrality for intensified terms of expression. Without counterargument or opposing perspectives, a puff piece brazenly advances, entertains, hypes, and converts. The padded sculptures and paintings on display share a puff piece’s excess. Materials and approaches range, but all works present viewers with a generous surface. Reflecting on these first formal impressions offers a personal key to each work, a self-indulgent way in promoted by Feelings in its publication Soft Art. With round, swollen shapes and gentle contours, these may bring on sensations of pleasure, mirth, safety, and ease before traveling off in different directions.
