de facto
04.11 — 05.18.10

De facto literally means “from the fact,” or “actual.” The sculptures in this most recent exhibition with the gallery Nathaniel Robinson strike a balance between pointing to their own physical reality and interfacing with an environ- ment of ideas and associations. Some aspects of the objects are conspicuously self-formed, their particular structure derived from processes beyond inten- tional control. Nathaniel Robinson lives and works in New York.
