SCHWARZ PROJECT 4: CHRISTOPHER TAGGART
Date: through 4/10/2006
Time: 9 AM to 5 PM
Location: The Richard & Dolly Maass Gallery - School of Art+Design
By first defining a set of construction guidelines derived from an analytical breakdown of photographs, his own body, or iconographic images, San Francisco-based artist Christopher Taggart sets in motion a metamorphosis resulting in composite drawings and structures that reveal the hypothetical nature of perception. Reflecting scientific models, his artistic experiments succeed by collapsing the mechanics of technology into the rudimentary labor of human craftsmanship.
By combining mathematical methodology with artistic invention, Taggart represents passion for making in its most contemporary iteration.
