Systems seem stable and static, and then they suddenly shift into a new orientation or locus, and then they resume their former quiescence. Is the change a settling toward the mean or is it the result of an unseen energy source? Is the new state a release of potential or a kick toward a higher instability?
Sounds like a residency, and this one is no different. Ted Ollier will be approaching his residency at the Nave Gallery with ideas in his head about cascading cubes, catenary curves and the confluence of courses. It is uncertain at this time how these conflicting concepts will coalesce, or whether they will cohabitate without comingling.
During the course of the exhibition, Ollier will continue to work in the gallery. Pieces may be reworked. New works may take root. Please join Ollier at three stages of this experiment and see what emerges.
