APRIL 8 - MAY 6, 2016

New York, NY – The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present the New York City solo exhibition debut of Paul Sacaridiz. Sacaridiz is at a place in his practice where his skills and intellect collide. Taken on their own Sacaridiz’s objects bear no resemblance or connection, but placing disparate components into close proximity his art intimates a cohesive narrative. Individually these are hermetic sculptures whose power grows in relationship to the other works, making their interest grow where otherwise only formal concern might reside.

"The problem with objects is that they can be so specific…I am interested in the collision of abstraction, urban planning and utopian systems; and the seemingly impossible task of understanding something in its entirety. My work carefully situates objects within systems that seem to imply an internal logic, but at the same time appear illusive and open-ended. Structures carefully frame out objects that appear random and chaotic alongside precise mathematical models and awkward structural forms... highly constructed, layered and insistent on being understood for what it is, rather than as placeholder for metaphor or illusion."—Paul Sacaridiz
