Taking place form March 14-May 4, 2013 at MADE in Toronto, this installation by Scott Eunson is an adaptable textural environment that evokes the scaling, fractal patterns seen throughout nature. Developed over many iterations, a natural, structural form emerges – an organic minimalism. Composed of a set of tetrahedral units of various sizes and complexities, the installation is adaptable to suit the locations where it is installed. Lighting is introduced to create a secondary texture of shadows that are cast into the surrounding space, the back corners of the cooler becoming obscured by layers of pattern.
The material used is a custom two-sided, high-pressure laminate from Wilsonart. Cut with a cellular pattern, the planar character of the material is transformed. Assembled into three-dimensional forms, the pieces exist as objects, but also partly remain as representations and abstractions. They are not completely real.
Scott Eunson has been exploring the grey area between the realms of art and design, creating sculptural pieces in a variety of materials. Over the past 15 years, he has exhibited in solo and group shows to critical success. Eunson has produced several large public art works for the TTC and the City of Toronto in collaboration with artist Marianne Lovink.
The opening reception takes place on Thursday, March 14 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
