Dan Gunn: Trickster Mechanism No.2. Courtesy of the artist and Monique Meloche Gallery.

September 3 to October 2, 2011 – Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago

Gunn’s abstract objects simultaneously inhabit the realms of painting and sculpture. In his three-dimensional compositions and installations, he explores perceptual phenomena using materials such as glitter, tinsel, chair caning, holographic paper, and patterned fabrics. His structures echo forms of display and domesticity while incorporating familiar found objects. For his UBS 12 x 12 presentation, Gunn explores the “depth” of painting by embedding a series of objects in a large horizontal surface.
