The works shown are a selection from four bodies of work made in between 2019 and 2022. Central themes and processes include collecting, revaluing, storing, moving, carrying, observational study, movement, play, the body, and materiality.
Single-use scrap materials collected from households, sidewalks, and construction site piles make up small chunky sculptural compositions. An arrangement of photographs and drawings serve as a contemplation of a minor injury. Lively-colored and playfully made paintings sitting somewhere between observational portraits and assemblages use found objects as source material. An evolving group of sculptures is made to be altered and exhibited in different configurations.
Together, the works enter into a playful exchange between sculpture and painting, between body and thing. The selection reflects the aspirations of an interdisciplinary practice. Everett Babcock’s practice aspires to present the mental and physical as inseparable conditions, and show that it is impossible to address one without including the other. It also hopes to foreground the character, vibrancy, and humor of matter, to see it as relatable substance to empathize with.
