Stuff Like Air: New work by Joseph Coniff @RULE Marfa
Dates: October 9 - December 5, 2015
Stuff Like Air, an exhibition of work by Joseph Coniff, debuts
concurrently with the grand opening on October 9, and will be on view
through December 5, 2015. The exhibition includes de- and re-
constructed, tailored fabric works, as well as smaller works on paper.
The tailored fabric works explore Coniff's reaction to the assumed
dichotomies within a binary worldview, focusing on the perceptual
possibilities inherent in relationships such as the figure and the
ground. Coniff challenges the polarities of these relationships and
looks with equanimity on what we might consider the foreground and the
background, and the "empty" space between. Through these works, Coniff
views the broken pattern as a line at which we can awake from malaise
and gain a greater understanding of being.
