Paradigm Gallery + Studio is pleased to present R ise and Shine, an exhibition of new works by Luke O’Sullivan, on view from September 22 - November 11, 2017. The show includes a series of 6 multicolor silkscreen prints and several new sculptures.
O’Sullivan creates invented buildings, places, and objects describing unexplored worlds conjuring a sense of discovery and adventure. Rise and Shine represents a shift from the artist’s earlier work featuring structures, facades, and panoramic landscapes toward a more detailed approach. These new works depict encapsulated, floating environments devoid of humans. The sculptural objects are keepsakes or relics from these faraway places. Each piece plays with the shifting relationships between two and three dimensions, surface and underworld. O’Sullivan’s recent screen prints introduce color, imbuing these works with a certain levity and illustrative quality.
