An installation by Daniel Wheeler
March 13 - April 24, 2004

Large-scale, experiential installation created by Los Angeles artist Daniel Wheeler. Viewers encounter limited vantage points and prescribed perspectives as they explore the 1930s yellow-tiled bathroom with sealed fixtures, travel through a tunnel into an oversized yurt and climb the metal rib-cage ladder to look down upon a profound and wry interpretation of the human body. www.danielwheeler.com

Xawery Wolski: Polvo/Proch/Dust
January 16 - February 21, 2004

The exhibition title “dust” in Spanish, Polish, and English bears homage to Wolski's global citizenry, as well as to the eventual “dust to dust” of the physical body, and the artist’s material. The exhibition highlights work completed in the last several years and includes a giant replica of a forty-foot steel chain; snaking intestinal tracks and elegant, minimal flesh forms; and rings of bulbous “clouds” suspended from fishing wire, all fashioned in smooth, skin-like terracotta.  www.galeriaomr.com
