Frank Juarez Gallery

Purgatory Misplaced: New Work by Rob Neilson

The term purgatory comes to us from the Latin purgatorium, meaning “a place of cleansing”. The content of this new body of free standing and relief sculpture is centered on the exchange between the idiosyncratic and collective associations borrowed from the imagery of the iconic depictions coupled with the form of classical bust sculpture: Specifically, the form of the double herma with its implications of borders and boundaries. With the ethos that in an absurd world only the farcical is truly genuine, Neilson creates sculptures that tease at the liminal spaces existing somewhere between truth and fiction, joy and suffering, redemption and damnation.

Shadow Accretion by Nirmal Raja

The intangible and the ever changing are fascinating places to explore in my work. As a transplanted individual living between two cultures, I try to identify where and how I fit into a place. Liminal concepts like memory and perception of time and space are natural extensions for this exploration, I address remembrance as transitional: how we add to, subtract from, and refract our memories and our understanding of location.
