Xylor Jane and B. Wurtz is a two-person show highlighting recent work of two important artists who consistently surprise with the simplicity of their means and process. B. Wurtz (b. 1948) makes sculptural assemblages from string, socks, buttons, household implements and plastic bags. Xylor Jane (b. 1963) draws on basic mathematical algorithms to make intricate painted patterns.
Dealing simply in the complexity and specificity of color and material, Xylor Jane‚s and B. Wurtz‚ artworks are rigorously executed translations of environment and experience. This exhibition is curated by MFA in Visual Studies Chair, artist and curator, Arnold J. Kemp.
