Kenzie Wells
Castle Fabricks - Surrealist Cubist Installation Sculpture, Mystical Dreamscape

2020

$19,575

About

This sculpture by Kenzie Wells depicts a surrealist landscape and an abstraction of a home or "castle." Stone tiles create a small walkway and steps to an archway, where a blue foam ball is coated in a black resin, resembling melted tar. To the left of the archway is a painted a black to purple to pink gradient, resembling an interstellar spacescape. This sculpture was created for an exhibit titled "Gradience." Artist Statement From Gradience: Gradience imagines a metropolitan scene, contorted within a wormhole of warped space and time. Each structure within the exhibition gives form to a physical gray area of jumbled materials and objects from everyday settings. Commonplace expectations are defied, leaving viewers traversing through a new dimension. Domestic and industrial objects have become petrified into rocky, stony slabs, leaving their functional qualities amiss in a condensed and crystallized state. Through this distorted, dimensional lens, the exhibition probes the constraints of our perception and questions our need to categorize and form binaries. We live in a society structured around the idea that opposites cannot coexist. As a queer, non-binary person, I exist in the gray areas between and outside of this structure. Gradience is an urban space subsumed by properties of various planetary anomalies where opposites coexist. The icy, blazing surface of the exoplanet Gliese 436 b seeps into structural material layers of the built environment, forming a gradient between human-design and naturally occurring processes. The materials, textures, and colors present in each conglomeration simultaneously call to mind lava and ice, hard and soft, or liquid and solid, blurring the line between these supposed opposites to further break down societal categorization.
