Ryan Scails 'Another Now'

SARDINE is pleased to present a solo show of new work by Ryan Scails titled Another Now. The show opens with a reception on Saturday, March 23, from 6 to 9 pm and will be up through Sunday, April 21, 2019.

Another Now, in a different here, these rendered objects are rooted in the conscious of a parallel mind. Every millimeter of surface, density and thickness displays itself not as proposal but as preconceived truth. In that same place - batteries run on the conductivity of their very existence; they resonate wildly with the frequency of what’s possible. In Another Now, materials are routinely assembled, disassembled and processed all over again. In this other now, things are powered by the purity of invention and extant information is re-contextualized through drawing, sculpture and mixed media to work within a fluid materiality unabated by fear. Loosely inspired by the formal properties of glass vessels and instruments, this work represents the potential of ingenuity and the limitations that can hinder it.
