The Three-Dimensional Line: volume, scale, illusion, emotion

April 16 – May 26, 2011 at Kirkland Arts Center

Curated by Ellen Ziegler for In Lieu Exhibit Space

Opening Reception: Friday, April 16, 6 – 8:30 PM at Kirkland Arts Center map

I did have a strong gut feeling from the beginning …

and that was wanting to be able to make sculpture

that didn’t have an inside.

Fred Sandback

The Three-Dimensional Line presents eleven artists who amalgamate volume, dimension, scale, emotion, and illusion with line in a myriad of ways. This exhibition explores the creation of three-dimensional form in the space of a room or in the mind of a viewer. The exhibit is curated by Ellen Ziegler for In Lieu Exhibit Space.

In an effort to make sense of the world, the eye and the mind navigate between two and three dimensions, using what are sometimes the barest visual clues. The humor and mischievous play apparent in these works exemplify the power that artists can harness to compel and confound the viewer. A perceptual game ensues; we feel our neurons firing.

The show’s concept was inspired by the work of Fred Sandback, whose work evoked place or volume in its full materiality without occupying or obscuring it. He spoke of "wanting to be able to make sculpture that didn’t have an inside," to "play with something both existing and not existing at the same time."


Tim Brown, Robert Campbell, Diem Chau, Amy Hamblin, Victoria Haven, Sean Johnson, Margie Livingston, Jean Lullie, Michael Ottersen, Susan Zoccola, and a work on loan by Vija Celmins.
