Arny Nadler; Firstlings: Sculptures + Works on Paper

Opening reception, Bruno David is pleased to present “Firstlings: Sculptures + Works on Paper”, an exhibition of new sculptures and drawings by Arny Nadler. This is his first solo exhibition with the gallery. Nadler’s sculptures investigate the body in a state of ambiguous metamorphosis. Many works begin as individual parts that are eventually grafted together in a manner that nods at structural order but disregards anatomical and proportional correctness. Irregular outgrowths in the material signal erratic germination or atrophy—a disfiguration of appendages. The resulting forms are often simultaneously heroic and absurd—they acknowledge the limitations of the body and flout conventional response systems. Where traditional figurative sculpture often captures a predictable motion in time and space, Nadler’s work changes as the viewer moves around it. What happens on one side might be wholly unanticipated on the other. By working against symmetry, he confronts the expectations of whole.
