Atticus Rabatin / Ariel ValenzuelaAugust 11-19, 2018
ARIEL VALENZUELA is a Milwaukee based artist and designer currently studying at MIAD. Valenzuela's work creates a relationship of line and object through sculpture creating tension and balance. The understated aesthetics of her works lure the viewer in, to experience the poetry of such relationships.
Exploration of relationships with food and play create tension that may be inseparable from one’s understanding of how they move through space. Bold objects, suspended movement, and dissonant reflections of the human form occupy a space that is simultaneously sterile and populated. Relational aesthetics are front and center in this collaborative installation by Rabatin and Valenzuela, which touches on themes of memory and the fundamental poetry of balance.
