Pope.L’s second exhibition at Catherine Bastide Gallery is entitled ‘Three Projects’ and is comprised of actually four projects.
From the ceiling, the artist has hung a large fragmented figural work that drips chocolate and i called ‘A Vessel In A Vessel In A Vessel’. Two works ring the walls of the space: 21 drawing from Pope.L’s ongoing racialist drawing enterprise entitled ‘Skin Set’. Interspersed between the drawings at uneven intervals is Polis, a set of intimately scaled shelf pieces; each holds a single painted onion.On the floor is a tall glass of milk entitled WELL.
Pope.L continues his longtime interest in the use of organic materials, a playful dispersal of media, format and language in order to create an exhibition that hovers between ideas, sensibilities, artworks and projects without loyalty to any.
