Bryan Ellis 2/Shelf
In the final days of our work together, Bryan and I assessed an expanse of the gallery too big to leave empty and too small to overwhelm with large images/pieces. Running to the left of my large wall painting/drawing, the breadth of wall and proximity to my work seemed to call from something from Bryan. He mentioned some little sculptures in his studio and the next day brought this little shelf and the blue one below in...I love them--their oddness and awkwardness draw me in.
Bryan doesn't typically show these--hopefully seeing them up will change that tendency.
