Michael Delucia at Eleven Rivington, New York

Michael DeLucia begins his sculptural works in a 3d modeling workspace behind a computer screen.  He then outputs his work in wood by cutting them with a computer-controlled router. The depth of carved line accommodates not only the dimensionality of the subject but that of the wood itself, engaging the illusory depth of the virtual object, the physical depth of the flattened image in relief, and the depth of the readymade material in space.

Through his use of industrial-grade paint and wood construction materials, the primitive forms he creates – spheres, cubes, tilted planes and other basic geometries – are juxtaposed with scales and materialities that are inherently absent in his computer based medium. The works articulate a dissonance between the purity of the abstract information and the nuanced complexity of the manufactured wood.  The resulting works bring questions about objecthood in the context of a sculptural experience that is increasingly mediated by transformed imagery.
