Excess Energy: David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles

Scott Myles (Artist)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


David Kordansky Gallery is pleased to announce Excess Energy, its first exhibition of new work by Scott Myles. The show will open on March 2, 2013, and run through April 20. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 2, from 6:00 until 9:00pm.

Myles' is a conceptually-based practice that finds material expression in sculpture, text-based works, juxtapositions of readymade objects, and installations. As a whole, the work represents a complex network of responses to social and physical infrastructures of all kinds. Most notably, these have taken shape as investigations into architecture and language, including the use of forms extracted from the municipal and cultural landscapes, as well as formal experiments that engage particular art historical lineages like gestural abstraction.

Excess Energy is an exploration of these themes with an eye turned toward the metaphorical ramifications of scarcity and overflow, economic precarity, and studio practice itself. But rather than having set out with overriding thematic concerns in mind, Myles has taken an improvisational approach, and has developed works that reflect the state of a world that veers violently between paucity and abundance, stupefied silence and unmediated chatter, logic and recklessness.
