Darryl Lauster: Recreating

January 12 – April 1, 2007

About The Exhibition

An installation of objects by Houston artist and art history instructor Darryl Lauster. The haunting resin and porcelain objects reflect the artist’s extensive research of 18th and 19th century American decorative arts, as well as his study of 20th century Modernists such as Alexander Calder, Constantin Brancusi and David Smith. Lauster’s commemorative plates, furniture and vessels are ghostly hybrids of inherited cultural values, contemporary aesthetic influence and ethical concerns. The artist observes: I continue, in a way, dissecting a collective history, communicating in contemporary forms the traditions begun centuries before me.
