Joe Davis: Rewired
Marfa, Texas. Population about 1800. An abnormal amount of wire collects here and there in streets and alleys all around town; a couple of years ago Joe Davis started saving it. The accidental shaping of it by being crushed under truck tires, and the rusty colored surfaces, and even the texture of it became thoroughly engaging to Davis, who began using it to make other shapes such as cubes and rectangles - re-bending it to make representational wall figures, and working on an endless series of graphite drawings of it. The original purpose of all this wire was connected primarily to the ranching business and now it's new life is filled with endless possibilities.

Opening Reception, Friday, March 6th, 5-9PM [Hazel Park]
