David Provan's solo show Proto-Possibilities opens August 3 with a reception for the artist on Sat. August 11th, 5-8pm at Cross Contemporary Art, Saugerties, NY and runs thru September 2nd, 2018. Daivd Provan's work will also be on view at Diamond Mills Hotel balcony overlooking the Esopus Waterfall. Proto-Possibilities is a survey of welded metal and ceramic sculpture as well as works on paper by David Provan. This is the first exhibition dedicated to Provan’s drawings and paintings as well as his both small and large-scale sculptures. Proto-Possiblities offers insights to the process of Provan’s welded steel and ceramic sculptures from inception to completion. David Provan explores color and form to create sculptural diagrams of spiritual and metaphysical experience. The chromatic brilliance of the powder-coated surface on steel structures make an unambiguous statement about Presence and the molded ceramic forms in turn create aperatures to alternate spaces. About his own work, David Provan writes: "Through my sculpture I’m trying to make visible & tangible the flow of energy that makes up all entities and events. To this end, I build schematic structures that trace the way elements coalesce into a pattern or identity and then, after a period of time, disperse. They’re the motion of birth and death translated into material form." As a visual poet, David Provan's artworks reflect both space and being - and their diametric opposites.
