Joe Sobel, ‘Peels 04’, 2017, Artgráfico

Peels is an on-going series made up of synthetic materials such as polyurethane foam, transparent lacquer and acrylic paint. He displaces these objects and materials by tearing or peeling them from their original substrate to create compositions based on how he feels about them specifically. After finding a frame he squishes them between glass/plexi and mdf. The softness is that of something internal and just above the surface. Is the composition an object and the glass skin? Each piece is an unidentifiable object posing as a potential biological structure whose texture is lost.
