Rhonda Weppler, Trevor Mahovsky
September 8 — October 2, 2004

Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky produce sculptures based on principles of mimicry, approximation and substitution. In some works the artists use immediate means such as casting, tracing or embossing to record the shape and surface characteristics of various objects ranging in size from single staples to automobiles.

Using the most direct means possible, each object is rendered in a single material that approximates its general physical character in terms of colour, opacity, and reflectivity. The limits of the selected materials often result in representations which succeed in certain terms yet fail in others: simplifications, incomplete versions, or exaggerations that manage degrees of simulation, depiction, or evocation.
