work by Garrett Gould and Joshua Mathews
In ("Please") two artists isolate and distill the meetings of the serial and banal into an exhibition. Photos from transient commutes and derelict store fronts are haunting and brief while the sculptures are playful yet warning. These works challenge each other to cast a shadow of humor within the exhibition that is subtle and recurring. Like a cliche that has denied it's metaphor every time it's spoken or a memory denied it's place in time each time it is recalled, ("Please") captures the entertainment of a request in constant resurrection.
