At the Rudolph Blume Fine Art / ArtScan Gallery

This solo exhibition of Exurban is sponsored by Sculpture Month Houston.

In sculptural series such as Turf Rolls, Pre-Fab(ulous), and The Not So Little Engine within this ongoing, multi-year project of Exurban, I consider the intangibility and responsibility of hyperobjects as I explore the tension between nature and societal innovation. Inspired by mise en abyme, I combine sizes and proportions to physically invoke a meta-narrative where one is both inside and outside, both subject and object, and both in control and being controlled.   These comparisons of perception address a drive to create a version of nature and of society with which we are comfortable — one that is contained and controlled.

LAND AND SEA
Stove Works, Chattanooga, Tennessee
Curated by Mike Calway-Fagen, Stove Works, + Daniel Fuller, Atlanta Contemporary
August 10 - September 9, 2018

INAUGURAL SHOW: LAND AND SEA
CURATORIAL BRIEF
Over time answers to the mysteries of the world, the ones hidden in the depths of the oceans, atop mountains, and embedded in the soil beneath our feet, have gradually revealed themselves. Similarly, there are mysteries of our own making, systematic forces of industry that see towns and cities, neighborhoods, rise up around us affecting how humans interact with one another, as well as their built and natural environments. But there is still more, so much more, maybe even too much. Stove Works in collaboration with Daniel Fuller, Curator of the Atlanta Contemporary, introduces the exhibition, LAND AND SEA. Through sculpture, video, painting, and sound, LAND AND SEA explores how water, air, and soil, those specifically of Chattanooga and East Tennessee, are altered, inhabited, mythologized, reduced, abused, explored, and celebrated.

Glasstire - K Space Contemporary at La Palmera, Corpus Christi, Texas

“...sprawling malls, like any other profit-driven commercial space, are hyper-political spaces. And of course the indoor malls are becoming the ruins left behind by a growing online-economy.“

“The most visually compelling of the works, Leticia R. Bajuyo’s Shiny Entropy, which is a vortex of CDs, reads like a black hole of outdated personal information, from computer backups to wedding videos to mix tapes. If you read the recent articles about Facebook and Google’s data on you, and how it never really goes away, Bajuyo’s archaic tide of technology could be the kind of physical manifestation of this notion that makes you shit your britches.”
