For his exhibition Journeyman, Rodrigo Valenzuela has fabricated a raised plywood floor that extends across the entire gallery and into which he has inset ceramic sculptures.

His current exhibition at Klowden Mann, Journeyman, features eight of these prints from his Stature series (all works 2020), each capturing an assortment of abstract, concrete forms stacked on one another. The function of the photographed assemblages is ... (read more)
