the ballpoint pen itself marking the canvas in circular motion that is much more intimate and biomorphic. Osuna’s Blurs are reminiscent of those fleeting, incongruous images seen on a road trip across the country, and which comprise the fractured foundation of human memory, and further still with the Centrifugations, particles are literally suspended on resin and react to the action of spinning. Time and gravity affect the pieces further during the process of curing, adding another layer of volatility and randomness to the work.
An opening reception for Miguel Osuna's SPIN 1 will take place on Saturday, November 10, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. SPIN 2 opens November 29. The exhibition will remain on view until December 15, 2012.
