The Long Division Gallery brings ‘Echoed Formalism ism ism’- an exhibition by Caleb Shea, opening its doors to the public in the final week of October.
October 24th, 2015
Running from Saturday 24, 4-6pm and Monday 26 – Saturday 31 of October, Utopian Slumps will re-form to host the one-off, temporary exhibition, showcasing Shea’s new series of neo-formalist sculptures merge geometric abstraction with organic form.
A low-lying sculpture will take the shape of a claw, while a tall two-legged work will represent a contorted human body with arms outstretched. Individual pieces made from steel and concrete will combine to create an experiential maze of spatial configurations.
Reminiscent of modernist sculptural forms like David Smith, but inflected with a decidedly post-internet aesthetic closer to the digital gradients of Cory Arcangel, Shea’s works are a distorted echo of an earlier mode of formalism.
Shea studied toward a Bachelor of Visual Arts, University of Newcastle, 1995-7 and graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Art (Sculpture), RMIT, 2006, a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours), RMIT, 2009 and a Master of Visual Arts, Victorian College of the Arts, 2011.
Echoed Formalism ism ism from Caleb Shea will take place at Long Division Gallery, Schoolhouse Studios, from 26 to 31 October 2015, 12:00pm to 5:00pm.
