OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, MAY 16TH, 6-8PM
SEAN-PAUL PLUGUEZ allows us into a creative compartment where even seemingly mundane objects have an aura of value. What more appropriate way to propel any object or surface to prominence than bathing it in a golden light.
Vault "a room or compartment for safekeeping of valuables".
Vault "to do or achieve as if by a leap, vaulted to sudden prominence".
With the three-year culmination of what Pluguez refers to as the "gold project" ordinary objects are awarded fine art status through the perceived value of precious metal. Canvases are embellished with texture and jewel-like bits
