Thomas Müller: baseline (language objects)
A solo exhibition of new work from Thomas Müller.
Launching Friday, April 2, 10 a.m. Pacific
Like clay, language is elastic. Changing and morphing over millennia, sometimes even within the course of a conversation, language can be molded to the needs of a speaker. My interest in language is poetic: an idea forms in the mind as an abstraction, we skin it with language and that idea becomes literal and then, as it enters the listener’s mind, it becomes an abstraction again. It’s that slippage between the literal and the abstract that informs my work.
