The Green Gallery West is pleased to present a new exhibition of work by Paul Stoelting. An opening reception for the work will be held this Friday February 6th from 8 to 11 pm at 631 East Center Street, 3rd floor. This is the artist's second solo exhibition at the gallery.
In this exhibition Stoelting continues to extract narrative and conceptual congruence from a grouping of disparate objects assembled from found and appropriated materials. The work offers an explicit examination of relationships between art, design, and commerce and is comprised of three individual artworks with supplementary seating.

In the work, Chromatic Interjection, a limited-edition suite of 18 collages, photographs of canonical figures of mid-century modernism are removed from a Design Within Reach "Annual Book" and marked with a stripe of commercial duct tape in one of 18 colors. Two of the pages include catalog copy in the form of quotations by Vernor Panton and Isamu Noguchi; respectively, "One sits better on a color that one likes", and "In my work, I wanted something irreducible, an absence of the gimmicky and clever." The tape appears again on Untitled Sculpture 1, a tall, slender, white monochrome made from a warped and pitted beam of "presentation-grade" lumber. In the third work, the catalog returns as the site of a drawn representation of Untitled Sculpture 1, where the page acts as a virtual gallery, and the sculpture is assigned its price.

Paul Stoelting was born in 1981 and lives in Milwaukee. Most recently, his work appeared in the NADA Art Fair Miami, the Milwaukee International Art Fair, and Dark Fair at Swiss Institute in New York. Stoelting will be part of the upcoming Green Gallery-curated exhibition, Wallgasm, at Angstrom gallery in Los Angeles.
