Foon Sham, pages, natural or manmade, 2009, 9.25” x 21.5” x 3”, wood and phone books

May 9 - June 13, 2009
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 9, 6:00-9:00pm

Project 4 presents a solo exhibition by Washington DC based sculptor Foon Sham. From their overall composition to how each component fits together, Foon Sham’s intricate wood sculptures utilize principles of design and nature to create a complex, synthetic poetry. In his deepening study of structure the work has become more architectural in its reference to building as well as to the human body and the environment.

Sham's current body of work continues this exploration of space through material by appropriating recycled phone book pages into the sculptural forms. The project began in China as a comment on population and identity, but has evolved into a conversation about his preferred medium, wood, and its relationship to the environment.
