This exhibit focused on the site-determined works by three artists living in Texas. Lauhakaikul’s work was informed by the political possibility of nuclear war and spoke of infinity, raw energy, and rebirth through his materials: mirrors, charcoal briquettes, and sapling trees. Sawyer’s work transformed the gallery into a sacred landscape, explored the fascination of repetition and minimal differences that recalled the conceptual logic of mazes. This idea of the inner focus of the labyrinth appeared always as a point of departure for her work. In his piece, Scranton constructed a representation of the devil from pieces of junk cars in DiverseWorks’ loading dock that was linked to the inner gallery space which he sheathed in steel and constructed a church-like space for a wooden figure suggesting the Virgin Mary. Music by Jim Leggett of Jesus’ Penisand lighting by Stephen Stout was also provided.
