Something More Cerebral

While opening hoping last night, I stopped by Little Tree for something more mellow.

Eduardo Consuegra's sculpture stood out the most. I didn't realize what the tall box in the corner was until he started joking about it. His idea came while rinsing out paint brushes in the sink, when he saw a sponge collecting the run off paint and water residue. After a couple other models, he came to the large rectangular cube. In talking about the concept behind the work, he continued to mention "absorption." Absorption beyond art, leading into the way life patterns are repeated and relived in new ways.

Flavorpill picked this art opening as one of their recommended events. Little Tree continues to get good coverage across the board.
