Decomposition is a process where elements are broken down further and are recycled back into nature. Imagery of decomposition has often become indigestible to the human psyche, mainly due to the grotesque essence of the process. The artist K. Haskell has chosen decomposition as a subject matter and as an analogy for their drawing practice. Haskell has drafted studies of the unwanted and the undesired, with each composition beginning as a detailed ink drawing of a chosen element found in nature, some of these studies become decomposed and broken down into abstractions, where they transform from the sketchbook into installations. Decomposed is a body of work that exists as an elegant visual representation of the uncontrollable and undesirable, from small detailed ink drawings to large irregular pattern of specimens as well as a site-specific installation, the viewer will experience the uncanny in a curious and aesthetic manner.
The opening reception for Decomposed will be held on Saturday February 1st from six to nine p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Viewing after the reception is by appointment. Please contact Chris Lucius at email@example.com
