Sculptures of Gypsum Crystals
Robin Peck
September 14 — October 12, 1996
Reception September 13

The OR Gallery is proud to exhibit Vancouver artist and writer, Robin Peck’s, new work in Sculptures of Gypsum Crystals. Peck is concerned with a class analysis of art making practice, particularly within a modernist legacy. He exhibits sculptures based on the arbitrary and organic crystalline structure of gypsum crystals, sculptures which are themselves fabricated from gypsum plaster. The sculptures deal with the implicit irony of an artwork whose facade doesn’t conceal its method of fabrication—an artwork that if broken would simply result in more sculptures—and acts as a both critique and metaphor of the hidden components of labour and the arbitrary value placed on artistic objects.
