Castellanos provides eight works in this solo exhibition along with one evening of performance. The show represents a sampling of different thoughts by the artist but as a whole each work has Castellanos’ mark and impression and therefore the show is seamless. The attention to the work is individualized like a signature. They are clean simple objects upon first glance but with further investigation the viewer can recognize the process each work encountered. Castellanos is interested in the attempt to create an object that specifically reflects an individual’s idea of a concept. Simply the attempt to create a visual impression. A beautiful gesture in the form of an object to define one’s perspective. The show can be seen as conceptual, mathematical, funny, dark, intense, or the calm before the storm. It is the first solo show by the artist outside of Castellanos’ performance work.
