Brian Kluge
Human After All
June 23-August 5, 2012


















I have come to notice that there exist certain predispositions that we share as human beings. These preferences run deeper than cultural values and social norms, operating at a subconscious level shaping some of the fundamental aspects of human experience. This exhibition reflects my ongoing exploration of some of these predilections through my sculpture. In this body of work I am dealing primarily with archetypal geometric forms, an allusion to artifacts, and a palette of “basic” color. Moreover, I am interested in the ability of something subtle and quiet to invite a moment of introspection and discovery.
