PRISM, in conjunction with Honor Fraser Gallery, is pleased to present a new site-specific work by Los Angeles based artist Gustavo Godoy.
Fast-Formal Object: Big Blue
PRISM- West Hollywood, CA
Rising skyward, the dynamic sculpture is a surprise on Sunset Boulevard, stretching upwards as an artistic punctuation mark that breaks the visual landscape of a billboard-laden stretch of the Strip. Using plywood, 2×4 scraps, paint, and fluorescent lights, Godoy creates large scale sculptures that are highly formal site-responsive compositions. He terms his sculptures “interactive exercises in construction” and uses these utilitarian materials to form lyrical, spatial and temptingly interactive structures.
Gustavo Godoy lives and works in Los Angeles. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree at UC Santa Barbara, a Master of Fine Arts degree at Vermont College in Montpelier, VT and has studied at the UCLA Department of Architecture and Urban Design. “Fast-formal Object: Big Blue” is a site-specific installation that is a follow up to Godoy’s first solo show at Honor Fraser earlier this year. Before his exhibition at Honor Fraser, he had a solo exhibition, titled “What’s the Big Idea.” Godoy has exhibited work both nationally and internationally at venues such as, Le Parc Saint Leger – Centre d’Art Contemporain in Pougues-les-Eaux, France, Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, CA, Workspace in Brooklyn, NY and Mexico Arte Contemporaneo in Mexico City. This fall, he has a tentatively scheduled show at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, OH.
