Toroidal Yodel

Mowry Baden

Opening Friday, September 9, 7pm

Deluge Contemporary Art is proud to present its second exhibition by renowned sculptor Mowry Baden. Toroidal Yodel is an extension of the artist’s ongoing interest in haptic sculpture. “I am not interested in haptic sculptures that are merely extensions of visual scenarios,” Baden has stated, “and I don’t want to burden the viewer with any exotic conditions. I want the viewer to experience the sculpture as directly as possible.” Toroidal Yodel is a work in which Baden has employed vortices – torus-like (or donut-shaped) slugs of air that swirl around a trans-spacial axis – to hurl palpable but invisible donuts of air at people interacting with it. Because the number, direction and velocity of these air slugs can be controlled via computer, the technology has provided the artist vast opportunities for experimentation. Describing each moving torus as a “micro event,” Baden has imagined a “program of micro events as long as a sonata

I think of all my work as drawings. Drawing is a descriptive language that extends my vocabulary and allows me to view my experiences through an extensive range of marks, materials and approaches. Every drawing is a hand-made journey through a passage of time that includes adventure, struggle and resolution. Through a process of construction and deconstruction, the line weight, character and quality of each mark, reflects my state of mind and feeling response to the subject matter. I enjoy the challenge of trying to capture ephemeral subject matter such as clouds, wind and the illusion of light by a continuous manipulation of materials.
