Inside Out: James Carl at Diaz Contemporary
James Carl's Jalousie series of sculptures, made of venetian blinds woven together in a precise, hexagonal pattern, are full of echoes, of the biomorpic forms of high Modernist sculptors like Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. But more than anything, they brim with absence: Simultaneously huge and light as air, they suggest nothign so much as a husk, an absent object's shed skin. Which, when you think about it, isn't a bad way to consider Modernism, a long-ago ideal with a legacy far more complicated than the idea itself ever intended. On until Oct. 12 at Diaz Contemporary.
