there is a transformation that takes place that is central to our various practices. the act of cutting alters the materials into something unexpected, revealing hidden qualities and creating new possibilities. it is an essentially reductive act, emphasizing the structure that remains at the end of the process. in this accumulation of marks, in the reduction of the whole, there is an inherent understanding of the process that is clear to the viewer; an acknowledgement of the concentration involved, the evidence of the artists’ hand that imbues the work with a significance that stands in contrast with the simplicity of the material.
So much change has happened for Works/San José in the last year. Along with a new physical location for the gallery, we’re continuing to modernize with a new website. Be sure to grab our RSS feed to plug into your RSS reader page or desktop app.
