This video documents the opening of Santa Fe-based artist William Metcalf’s show at Charlotte Jackson Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico / USA. The exhibition entitled “Infinity Series” presents works that are made of machined aluminum and translucent polyester fabric. At the first glance they look like a painting, then like a sculpture. The perception of three-dimensional space is enhanced by the polyester’s weave of microscopic transparent fibers which makes it particularly soft and unreadable – unlike hard Plexiglas. Impressions from the opening of William Metcalf’s exhibition at Charlotte Jackson Fine Art, Santa Fe, July 5, 2008.
PS: The New Mexico Museum of Art has a video with an interesting conversation with William Metcalf on its website.
