Dark Matter, work by Robert Thurmer
On view at Arts Collinwood Gallery – Friday, May 11 – Sunday, June 4
Opening Reception – Friday, May 11, 6pm-10pm
Robert Thurmer, is an artist who lives and works in Cleveland. This artist has shown his thought-provoking work at numerous shows locally, nationally and internationally. His current works to be featured at Arts Collinwood examine how we recognize art objects.
“Specifically: what are the markers for ‘art object’ that are generally recognized without specialized privileged information. To explore these ideas, I started making these recent sculptures in an attempt to make my own ‘found’ art, what I like to call paraphrastic objects – stand-ins that refer to certain kinds of conventional art objects.” Robert Thurmer
