Jacob Robichaux Haptic
May 7 - June 5, 2010
Dorsch Gallery presents Haptic, a solo exhibition by Jacob Robichaux, from May 7 - June 5, 2010. An opening for the artist will be held on May 7th from 7 - 9pm. The gallery will also be open for Second Saturday on May 8th from 7-10pm.
Haptic opens up a space for the disruption of hierarchy through play. Dusty slides click through slide carousels and rhythmically fill the space with projections that read at first as monochromes but, over time, reveal a set of short gestural performances: the smashing of faux dinner plates made of candied break-a-way glass and often used for carnival games. A series of paintings offer a studied and sophisticated use of vibrant primary colors, as well as highly textured surfaces adorned with bits of smaller embedded objects and materials including dyed wool, pins, waxed string, straws, and jute.
