The Gallery at Casa: SURFACE ALL THE WAY THROUGH work by Arianna Richardson
April 16 – June 4
Casa – Main Gallery

Surface All the Way Through – Arianna Richardson
Surface all the way through is an exploration of superficiality, distraction, reflection, containment, emotional blockages, consumerism, accumulation, and waste.

This exhibition is composed entirely of plastic: a material that I am endlessly attracted to for its shape-shifting mimicry and limitless supply of exciting surface qualities. As a toxic, uncontainable, and grossly over-produced material, it is also repulsive and surrounds me with dread and despair. It is between opposites that I have created these objects: working to both deflect and deal with my own conflicting attitudes in a time of vast uncertainty, inexpressible emotions, and constant horror.

Most of the plastic here is the result of my own consumption habits (discarded packaging) or collected from the thrift store (abandoned craft supplies and decorations). Contained within the hand-crafted gallery seating is 5 years worth of collected plastic packaging and several of my own old artworks and material experiments.
