ELKINS, PA.- Temple Gallery presents Damian Moppett, After the Fall. Vancouver-based artist Damian Moppett is well known across Canada for his material investigations of historical practices. Through wide-ranging and often deliberately mimetic sculptural fabrications, he explores previous artistic strategies, developing the latent material, pictorial and conceptual possibilities in other artists’ languages, and opening up critical issues in relation to history and shifting notions of the avant-garde. Temple Gallery will present Moppett’s latest project, a series of drawings and cast sculptures instigated by his research on modern sculpture. In it he engages the specific processes of molding and casting, and explores their potential for replication and repetition while using material to insinuate a critique of artistic hierarchies. His works form a loosely constructed personal art history that incorporates contradictions, anachronisms and serendipitous parallels—an allegory of relationships assembled through his serial identification with Alexander Calder, Anthony Caro, Henry Moore, Hollis Frampton and others.
