Crudity attempts to formalize a new primitive, rudimentary in form and unrefined in surface treatment. The study includes four figural monoliths thickly troweled in paper mulched-plaster and  wrapped in finely knit sweaters, each portraying a material graphic representative, concrete, wood, terrazzo and brick.  To curate the work, we treat the forms as taxidermy, looking to the Greek derivation of the term, translating to “arrangement of skin.” Here the artist or architect then becomes the trophy hunter, displaying his recent hunt in various ways, positioned in an action pose or unrolled and flattened, each exploring the arrangement of skins as layers with various degrees of graphic crudeness.
