Nina Johnson Gallery exhibits carbon fiber and terra-cotta bas-relief works by artist Nicolas Lobo. Each has a rectilinear substrate made of carbon fiber that supports irregularly shaped wads and disks of terra cotta. The disks are marred with the indentations of different types of mechanically produced food: Onion rings, crinkle-cut French fries, M&Ms, breakfast cereal. The wads carry impressions of the interface to various types of ATM machines.
In their ruptured geometry, these forms speak to the ambitions, and shortcomings, of industrially manufactured objects, to the collapsing hegemony of modernism, and to the hierarchy of culture, as seen from directly above.
