April 1 - 29
Opening Reception during IDADA First Friday Art Tour, April 1, 6 - 9 pm
Artist Talk: April 14, 6 pm
Shawn Causey and Mark Daniell have collaborated on multiple projects including two large scale pieces in downtown Indianapolis–one constructed and one painted, both carrying the central color theory themes which are the basis of their public work. Sweet Spot continues this color investigation as the artist team constructs their most immersive piece to date. They will fill Gallery 924 with approximately 3,000 multicolor nylon cords hanging from ceiling to floor, creating a unified composition that brings color rhythms and patterns into three dimensions.
Visitors will be encouraged to discover a myriad of perspectives created by the installation by moving around and throughout the piece itself. The viewer will see shimmering rhythmic patterns as cords at different depths of field seem to float past each other. Observing new color harmonies from every vantage point enables the viewer to find their own “sweet spot”–a unique experience of resonating color relationships.
