Exhibition title: Weightless
Artist: Matthew Harris
Exhibition dates: 
Exhibition space: RMCAD's Rude Gallery

Weightless features a new life-size figurative sculpture and three preparatory studies on paper by Matthew Harris, RMCAD sculpture faculty. In hopes of finding expressions that are not taught but discovered through actual experience, these works, like his others, stem from an experimental attitude towards object making and a willingness to use most materials that are around him.  Harris uses his intuition to create these experimental works that playfully question how society values time, intelligence, and beauty. The open ended exploratory process allows the artist to critically look at not only his physical relationship to the world, but also his psychological relationship to it.
