Oh wow, it's Daniel Arsham

Oh wow, it's Daniel Arsham:re-blog from CRBlog

The installations of American artist Daniel Arsham play with the very fabric of the gallery itself. His first solo show, the fall, the ball and the wall, has just opened at the OHWOW gallery in Los Angeles

Hiding Figure, 2011, Fiberglas, paint, joint compound, mannequin, fabric, and shoes, 87 x 48.5 x 13 inches

The show, OHWOW says "illustrates the artist's continued interest in manipulating architecture and in challenging expectations of accepted realities".

In these latest works, Arsham uses materials such as fibreglass and foam to create pieces that appear to be formed out of the walls of the gallery itself.

Curtain, EPS foam, plaster gauze

Mail Slot, 2008, Bronze, plaster, paint, joint compound

the fall, the ball and the wall is at OHWOW, 937 N. La Cienega Blvd. Los Angeles, until February 16. Details here
