This November through January 4th, Artspace Untitled showcases the art of James Sullivan. Sullivan uses straw, plaster, and creativity to mold his lifelike and textural sculptures. The appeal of its palpable physicality is at once proximally tactile and distally visual. The seeming density of the mass is composed of a flickering of linear elements constellated into volume. There is a profound sense that any volumetric form, however abstract, references the figure insofar as volume entails a distinction of exteriority and interiority. Sullivan's works evoke more than the figure as abstract notion or conventional motif - they elicit the concrete lived experience of the body. Artspace Untitled is located at 1 NE 3rd Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73104. Admission is free.
