Books have always been symbols as much as objects -- perhaps even more so. When they were precious and rare, owning them was a sign of power and wealth. When they became widely disseminated, they (and the access to knowledge they represented) were seen as a threat to those social structures. In more modern times, the book has become a bit of both. A collection, a library, or just what’s on your shelves or coffee table now says as much about you as the clothes you wear, and people curate their bibliographic displays as much for public appreciation as for personal expression. Moreover, every book collector has their own unique system for organizing their volumes -- by author, subject, binding, jacket, language, date, size, circumstance, and intuition. Connections between and among them are organic, malleable, arbitrary, and their jostling itself can yield unexpected poetry.



Artist Pancho Luna remembers his grandmother’s library as an eclectic and rather magical place. It contained volumes of volumes in several different languages, which didn’t matter all that much since he started exploring them long before he could read anyway. It turns out there’s more than one way to read a book, though, and Luna became enamored of them all -- as pure color, shape, smell, texture, typeface; as repositories of photographs, illustrations, reproductions; and ultimately as sites of experience and triggers of memory -- in short, as both symbols and objects. And it is precisely this multifaceted power to impart knowledge by means other than words on pages which Luna explores in his luminous, alluring, and deceptively simple sculptural works in which recreations of curated bookshelves are rendered in transparent lucite to powerful, nuanced effect.



Recreating the esoteric quality of his experiences in those early heady days alone in the family library, Luna engineers quasi-architectural arrangements in which sequences of individually fabricated “books” are placed as carefully as still lifes. Much like those volumes he could not yet read, the seductive appeal of these sculptures is, at least at first, almost entirely aesthetic. The clear, chromatically lined blocks are stacked, aligned, and tilted, setting slivers of fine lines and bright colors in staccato rhythms that flicker and change as the viewer moves across and around, peers inside and pulls away again. Their capturing and refracting of ambient light in blended, geometrical abstraction recalls the materialism of Light & Space artists like Vasa or Larry Bell. And after all, he’s a sculptor, not a writer.



And yet, Luna is no pure abstractionist. Fundamentally, he is a storyteller interested in communicating fresh ideas about art history, global political and social issues, technology, science, architecture, music, religion, and cultural identity. Thus each bookshelf must also be understood as a narrative contained within itself, one that unfolds not only through Luna’s deft and refined beckoning formalism, but also through evocative meanings generated by choices that are in no way accidental. Though these books cannot be opened, they can very much still be read.

Blake Baxter is best known for reductive monochromatic paintings incorporating aggregates such as sand and cement. His work is optical- focusing on light and space as a way to affect the gaze of the viewer. Often working with black acrylic washes and many dense layers of sand, he creates a reflection and movement that changes under different lighting conditions. This quality makes this work ever changing with direct viewing imperative. Even though the medium is static and minimalist, the darkest areas still glimmer.



“My pieces are constructed with minimal materials. I follow repeatable processes of sequenced steps that yield variation despite my efforts to minimize the same. The result is a loosely structured communication, which, when met by perception, seeks to establish form. One might see a single piece recreated over and over, or individual pieces grouped by common values, or wholly unique objects defined by their relative distances from each other in time and space. As such, these are exercises in the interpretative power of consciousness, providing viewers a pathway towards separation from the mundane through a mediated process of observation.”



Baxter was born in Los Angeles and attended UCLA School of Arts and Architecture before completing his BA in Fine Art at UC Santa Cruz. He has exhibited in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Oakland, Seattle, Buffalo, and Palm Springs; and was an exhibiting member of the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition. His work has been featured on EMS ArtScene; in Palm Springs Life and ART Patron magazines; and is in the permanent collection at the Palm Springs Art Museum, as well as numerous, notable private collections. He lives and works today in Joshua Tree, CA.

His works are found in many corporate collections as well, including those of IBM, HBO, American Airlines, American Express, Citibank, Las Vegas’s Bellagio Hotel, Neiman Marcus, Hallmark, and the Sanyo Corporation, to name a few.

Cecil Touchon has played a major role in the fine arts arena for well over two decades. The highly acclaimed artist has exhibited in galleries and museums in Dallas and Fort Worth, as well as in New York, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Boston, Houston, St. Louis, and Atlanta, among other cities. International exhibitions include venues in Paris; Amsterdam; Berlin; Cuernavaca, Mexico; and Italy, where he participated in the Venice Biennial in 2009 and 2001.

Touchon is the founder and director of the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction and co-founder of the International Post-Dogmatist Group. He is also a member of the Massurrealist Society and founder of the La Sociedad Massurrealista de Mexico. He has been featured in dozens of exhibition catalogues, magazine articles, and scholarly publications, the most recent of which will be published in 2010 and is titled Masters: Collage—Major Works by Leading Artists (Lark Books).

A texas native, Cecil Touchon was born in Austin and attended both North Texas State University in Denton and the University of Texas at Alington.

ARTIST STATEMENT


"The majority of my works that deal with lettering forms originally started out as a Fluxus idea, and that idea was to create compositions out of randomly chopped up lettering and then reconstruct an abstract 'poem' from the parts. I wanted something that frees the words and letters from their practical use as bearers of literary meaning allowing them to function on a purely visual and concrete level." – Cecil Touchon
