In Table of Contents by Addison Marshall, thirteen strange objects of various shapes and sizes are scattered on a long narrow table. Eleven are a chalky bone white and curiously, only two are cloaked in a charcoal and glazed. They draw out a childlike curiosity in the viewer, generating feelings of wonder and lingering in the recesses of the mind.
Though they are bold and graphic, they stand elegantly, generating power and radiating presence. But they also command the negative space, their distinct silhouettes drawing attention to the gaps between. They exist in a world of objects with knowable functions and names, without the need to be known, for they have no clear objective. And while they elicit familiar things, we can’t quite catch what they are.
The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
