Patrick Hurst: A Sculpture Mirrors Reality

Jun 7

Please join Long-Sharp Gallery as we celebrate the arrival of Patrick Hurst’s works to Indianapolis – indeed, to the United States – for his first U.S. solo exhibition.

The artist, born in the UK in 1988 and presently working out of Rome, Italy, sculpts primarily in metal. This exhibit features eight works by the artist, ranging in size from nearly six inches tall to six feet tall. All are steel or bronze, and each is highly technical.

Hurst’s artwork is in part a response to our divisive times. Through application of the universal languages of physics, geometry, and mathematics, Hurst seeks to create opportunities for shared understanding. As Cassie Beadle, curator at Cob Gallery, London, describes: “Hurst’s recent sculptural work seeks to condense and harness the complexities of ancient mathematics, human history, and its experience into pure form – Hurst urges us to question the universalities of human experience.”

The opening reception on 7 June from 6:30-9:00pm will be sponsored by Conrad Indianapolis; light drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided. We hope to see you there!
