In spring 2009 the Californian gallery Royale Projects in Indian Wells showcased the first solo gallery exhibition of the US artist Phillip K. Smith III. ‘Line to Line’ is a temporary installation made of polystyrene, styrospray and latex paint.
Here is what the artist explains:
“Could two-dimensional marks be the window to a three-dimensional space beyond? Transforming from a line to a line, this piece creates a distinct exterior and interior relationship with the space within which it is contained. Between the opposing “lines” lies the dimensional structure of the sculpture, defining at once its peripheral skin and the internal space of the form itself. Shifting between two and three dimensions, the linear graphics of this interior space suggest the perspectival representation of an infinite void.”
By the end of 2009, the 55′ tall fiberglass sculpture, “Inhale/Exhale,” and the 12′ tall steel tube sculpture, “Clarity,” will both be installed at the University of La Verne, just north of Pomona, CA.
