tart presents a show of new work by Gabriel Kulka. Known for his haunting, sometimes achingly evocative sculptural work, Gabriel presents a series of petite work for this exhibit. Figures crafted from scraps of hardwood, string, nails, metal, and other “junk” cause the viewer to stop, to think, to find something new upon each viewing.
Whether the pieces are two feet tall or two inches high, Kulka’s sculptural perspective reverberates with isolation and what it means to be ensnared in the human form. Much of Kulka’s work invites the viewer to participate – to twist a string, move a leg, turn or remove a part of a sculpture – to be whimsical, mindful, fully in the world. But it is only a tease, because in the end we still feel like a visitor.
An opening reception will be held during Art Walk on Friday, August 13th, 5-8pm.
