ROBERT GROSVENOR‘s work can exist in a museum. Or on a driveway. Or in a barn. Or whatever. In other words, GROSVENOR‘s sculptures seem to still function as real things in the world, and not as some extraneous objects to be placed on a pedestal. Similarly, many of the materials he is using are familiar, industrial and found. GROSVENOR‘s arrangements display singular yet familiar structures and forms while emphasizing the use-value of materials as well as the traces of time on their surfaces.

Maccarone in Los Angeles is currently presenting an exhibition by ROBERT GROSVENOR. This solo exhibition is on view until September 30, 2017.
