Nathan MABRY (b. 1978, lives Los Angeles) will present a new large monochrome sculpture made in painted bronze. Mabry makes multi-part sculptures that treat art history as a kind of readymade. A student of Paul McCarthy, Mabry first became known over ten years ago for works that utilized the sculptural forms of ancient cultures, like Peruvian Moche, in contrast with the forms of American sculpture of the 1960s. Mabry's sculptures allow neither of the sourced forms to operate in their original frameworks. His works force each system of representation to bend in the face of the other; and to force the user to interpret the final result.
