Rock Paper Scissors

Rock Paper Scissors features new work by Noriko Ambe, Josh Dorman, Jim Osman, Steve Pauley, Claudia Pena, and Jen Schwarting. The exhibition is the fifth commissioned pedestal project.



Rock Paper Scissors not only refers to the popular game enjoyed by children and adults the world over, but also to three fundamental materials and techniques in the making of visual art. Since ancient times, stone has been a ubiquitous material in sculpture. Ever since paper has existed, artists have used its flexible nature to make everything from drawings to three-dimensional structures. Cutting, folding and attaching various materials together to create collage is a timeless technique employed by artists through the centuries. The six contemporary artists in Rock Paper Scissors utilize aspects of all three materials and methods creating works of beauty and surprise.  Though they differ in practice and approach, these artists reveal interconnectivity to each other through the materials they prize. ” Tom Kotik, curator
