OLSEN GRUIN is pleased to present "April Fools" - new work by the New York-based, pioneering Australian artist TV Moore (Timothy Vernon Moore).
When a friend saw TV Moore's latest work for the first time, his response was simple: "A beautiful lie."
The lie is not so much a lie as a magic trick. Moore likes to push materials, rigging his objects with a sleight of hand that always reveals itself before the act is over.
These miraculously created sculptures started with a trip back to the artist's mother's house. For a few weeks in Canberra, Australia's bush capital, Moore cut up and rearranged pieces of cardboard.
There is an aura to these works, a sense of the past leaving its imprint only to reveal its essence.
For Moore, the simplest forms hold the most water.
