APROPOS OF NOTHING
Opening Reception: Friday, May 30, 2014, 6-8pm
Exhibition runs through July 11, 2014.
Why and what-for? asks Jim Nolan in his second solo exhibition at Art Palace, APROPOS OF NOTHING. Fascinated by artificial flowers and the 99¢ stores that sell them, Nolan has assembled a series of sculptures, paintings and photographs that are equal parts formal and feral. The work in APROPOS OF NOTHING maintains the identity of its low-brow origin while performing as deadpan lyrical paintings and monolithic objects. Nolan addresses his ongoing concerns in a unique visual language, taking a decidedly blue collar stance to deliver poignant jabs at art history.
