Galleri Urbane Marfa + Dallas says
LA artist Marion Wesson's Cluster Fail will open May 13th from 6 PM - 8 PM with an artist talk prior to the reception at 4:30 PM. Cluster Fail debuts in response to Wesson’s deeply personal experience over 2016. Navigating stages of collusion, panic, rationalization, isolation and retaliation, her new work transcribes a miasma of feeling into a piercing visual narrative of collapse and sustenance. Wesson’s Cluster series involves work created in the aftermath of a tumultuous relationship, during a time of difficult but positive change. Each piece tells a unique story of abuse and self-awareness. “I came to the conclusion that the paintings had to work in concert with the sculpture,” Wesson says, “and that a cohesive collection that told a story was paramount.” Her Cluster work urges conversation through a simple diorama of chairs, chosen by the subject, meant to represent both support and dialogue. They are upholstered in fabric designed by Wesson that incorporates mundane objects as powerful symbols of oppression. Each conversation area is intricately tied to a Cluster series painting that hangs above, imploring the viewer to participate rather than just observe. The artist will host an artist talk to begin the conversation as a prelude to the reception.
