Staff Pick: Holly Wilson's "Vapid Conventionalities"

Jim Fischer

Columbus native Holly Wilson creates blunt, observational installation sculpture.

Wilson's current work involves the repurposing and reinventing of discarded appliances and other electronic items. This theme is highlighted in the 934 Gallery exhibition "Vapid Conventionalities," an intensely personal-yet-relatable collection of works challenging the viewer to rethink the noise of contemporary society.

Wilson, a BFA graduate of Syracuse University who now co-owns and operates Apostrophe' S Gallery in Syracuse, created new work specifically for this exhibition.

"The sculptures are mediations of banality found in the everyday objects used to engage in personal fulfillment," the artist said via email. "Observing a society consistently driven by self-directed consumption, the work aims to insinuate the audience with a conglomerate discharge of its pre-determined behavior driven from commodity."

Gallery hours are Saturdays from noon-4 p.m., or by appointment.
