Romer Young Gallery is pleased to present its third solo exhibition with artist Kirk Stoller, Thrown a Curve. Thrown a Curve expands on Stoller’s ongoing discourse between object and metaphorical emotional states. At first glance, his sculptural objects exhibit an overt instability. The collection of small, precariously placed pieces that rely on each other for strength and support, accentuates a relationship to the fragility of life. Yet despite first appearances, each sculpture is subtly engineered to defy expectation and reveals an underlying stability, an inner strength, and an enduring core.
Stoller’s sculptures are built of found wood, plastic, metal, and parts of things that have been divorced from their original context. These weathered materials are then combined with gloss-coated surfaces and custom colors that are part of the artist's personal lexicon. Stoller accentuates these formal concerns while also contemplating the history and evidence of past actions contained in many of the parts. Through these juxtapositions unexpected narratives arise.
