Sam Perry: Intertwined

April 23 - July 2, 2022

Since the beginning of his journey with the medium of wood, Sam Perry has experimented with sculpture that seems to bend, twist, or melt in front of the viewer, who may not realize every piece is carved from a single branch, log, or stump (most of which are sourced from Runnymede Sculpture Farm in Woodside, CA where Perry has long been the director of conservation). The new collection of pieces on view in this exhibition highlight this illusion of malleability, and the rigid wood seems supple and stretchable, in defiance of its intrinsic characteristic. "Intertwined" features extremes of scale ranging from exquisitely delicate attenuated pieces to new massive compositions that writhe with life.
