Locust Projects in Miami is hosting an exhibition titled “Backsplash II” by Katie Bell that will be on view through January 21, 2017.
The exhibition presents an installation by Brooklyn-based artist Katie Bell, which serves as a visual and conceptual sequel to her previous exhibition with the gallery, “Backsplash”. Approaching the reactivation with the domestic language of remodelling, the artist refurbished the front project space, laying new flooring, rearranging the deconstructed furniture and adding new focal elements to the wall. The sculptural language is populated with artefacts of home design and commercial interiors, which becomes painterly gestures that is equivalent to brushstrokes and paint spatters across three-dimensional space. “Backsplash II” brings the materials of its prequel back into direct conversation- transplanting the back room materials into the front, foregrounding the cause and effect of the sculptural presentation.
The exhibition is on view at Locust Projects, Miami Design District, 3852 North Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33127, USA.
