▫️Tensor Field ▫️features new works that highlight Zachary Buchner’s continued investigation into the complex relationships between materials and experience and the prevalent use and symbolic possibilities of plastics. Utilizing both additive and subtractive processes, soft and rigid plastics, his current work references the shallow illusionism, backlit glow and overlapping layers of our digital field. Replacing the open browser windows, guides and grids of our shared digital lives with physical materials, Buchner reminds the viewer through frontality, reflection and scale, of our own bodies.

His practice is rooted in a long fascination with Color Field painting, the Light and Space artists and the structures of Neo Geo. Buchner seeks to extend these historic visual and material languages by focusing on their relationship to contemporary technology, notably the flatness and vastness of the screens in our world, but also through their respective histories with plastic.

▫️Screen Grab,▫️ presented by Monaco and PRACTISE, is a group exhibition featuring Joe Cassan, Andrew Falkowski, Andres Kim and Kate McQuillen in the Monaco Projects Gallery.

Organized in coordination with his concurrent solo exhibition, PRACTISE Director Zachary Buchner presents an exhibition of four artists whose diverse work shares a common interest in the effect, materiality and experiences of the screens in our digital world.
