In "Material World," Darcie Book invites visitors to share the sense of discovery she experiences in the studio, where she develops innovative processes to explore acrylic paint as a sculptural material. Her work pushes the boundaries and possibilities of painting by navigating the realms between the two- and three-dimensional. The sculptural paintings preserve the vitality wet paint possesses as raw material. Paint protrudes into space and defies gravity, appearing to ooze or flow as it makes its departure from the two-dimensional picture plane. While her work embodies a sense of the otherworldly, Book is interested in how the heightened physicality of the paint may generate corporeal resonance, and elicit desire or longing.

"Material World" showcases artifacts from Book's material experiments, with a focus on intersectional realms (material/ethereal, painting/sculpture). The viewer-participant is rewarded for physically moving around the works: hidden details are revealed upon closer examination, and the paintings' compositions change when viewed from different vantage points.

The exhibit will run through March 28.
