“TEEM”, Matt Paweski’s second exhibition at Gordon Robichaux, runs until October 31, 2021. The exhibition presents a new body of site-specific work which includes ceiling and wall-mounted sculptures, tabletop sculptures, cut-vinyl drawings, and wall murals. Paweski’s forms effect function, but questions what that function is. Gaps become imaginative relations and colors follow a sporadic rhythm. The show brings together various dimensions of Paweski’s practice, material and immaterial alike.
