I took my Grandpa to see this show when it was up at David Kordansky's new space off La Brea in LA...and WHAT A WIN. I first saw on of Aaron Curry's sculptures at a fundraiser at a collector's home. I didn't know it then, but that was a moment that I saw good contemporary art in someone's home and how they lived with it. I think it was between a coatrack and a piano.
NOTICE IT. BE WITH IT. BE AROUND IT. DO A TRIPLE AXEL OFF IT'S DIVING BOARD.
Ever since, I've been aware of Mr. Curry's production and really appreciate how consciously he roots his practice with references to massively important points in art history which include the distorted planes of Cubism, the bright colors and flat surfaces of Pop, and the sometimes disconcerting biomorphism of Surrealism. Yo, I would love a slice of that pie. Please and thank you.
