Low Relief Objects
One of Elliott Earls many bodies of work deals with low relief sculptural objects. Many of these objects (on a formal level) explore bas relief in 18 x 24 x 2 inches. These sculptures are wall pieces. Among other issues, this work draws upon a formalist avant-garde design history.
Many of these objects are limited editions that are available through www.minislimited.com.

Prior to the exhibition ComicRelief at WassermanProjects, I spent a lot of time considering methods to extend graphic language into three dimensional objects. I think my work compositionally, has been marked by a simple binary. One portion of my work has relied on an almost baroque compositional sensibility, while the other has been simple. This is a very long way […]
I’ve been developing a body of work that extends my graphic language into low relief objects. This 18 x 24 x 2.25″ ebonized Apsen panel is the latest example. Note the inclusion of the cyclops head from my Elegy for the Collapse of the Empireinstallation.
Over the course of the past two months I have been working on a new body of work that attempts to take a number of ideas normally found in traditional graphic design practice and extrapolate them into three-dimensions. These are but a few of the latest examples of a similar conceptual program that spans close […]
