Drew Daly's latest sculptures are all made from the same single object: an IKEA chair, "an object that has absolutely no shock value," an object "without content."

It isn't the object that Daly hones in on, it's what's happening to it. For these are objects that have been subjected, at least optically, to a series of actions. They've been compressed or expanded, cropped, merged, doubled, and quadrupled. They've been handled like photographs in Photoshop, taken to be as malleable as information.
