The Subject, the Secondary, and the Object displays these elemental roles in various spatial arrangements. Kyoko Oshiro’s floral works sculpt interlaces, where one plant element overlaps another and creates a sense of tension between alternating materials. Patrick Lakey’s female ‘Morrison’ acts as a poetic locator- an aimless figure in the landscape of American myth. Connie Walsh’s tight photographic lens re-frames architect Rudolf Schindler’s interiors as planes, volumes, and voids, establishing inhabitable abstractions. In each, the subject is present in various ways: as a human in Lakey’s HWY, as the central stem in Oshiro’s arrangements, or perhaps as simply space being asked to hold light in Walsh’s photographs. In these exchanges a multiplicity develops where the subject’s dependency on the existence of the object and the interplay of any secondary becomes revealed.
