Exhibition, Museum of Craft and Design San Francisco, USA, 01 February - 30 March 2014.
Obsessive Reductive is a group exhibition that includes approximately 12 artists working in a variety of media including paper, wood, and metal. Participating artists share the common process of intricately, precisely, and ‘obsessively’ removing material to create extraordinary imagery and sculpture. Many of these works have reticulating patterns, and in some cases the use of material absence is employed as a significant design element positioning negative space as a dominant element. The visual similarity of all featured works in the show is the concentrated detail and complexity, despite the various media used and approaches taken.
