Opening Reception – According to Plan
October 4, 2018
Art Gym Denver presents According to Plan by Christine Ann Nicols in the Common Space Gallery with an opening reception October 4 from 5 – 8PM. On display October 4-26, 2018. Free and open to the public. Gallery Hours: Mon-Fri 9am-6pm
According to Plan is comprised of 3D metalsmith works by Christine Ann Nicols. Her practice has evolved from smaller jewelry works to larger Utilitarian Sculptures. The 3D works presented in this exhibition are a series of lamps made with copper and geode rocks. Nicols wants her work to “serve a purpose, but look nice while doing it,” and these lamps certainly do that. Repeating the natural shapes found in the geodes, she cuts the copper plates to form the structure for the lamp fitting. The combination leads to an entirely new and singularly unique object. When asked about the concepts found in her work, Nicols replied “tell me what you think it means, and I’ll tell you that you’re right.”
