Then, the things are gathered and shown in a gallery, where they wait for connection. I've always loved Bruch's work for its sheer intelligence, and his new show of sculpture and drawings is, I believe, his first time really incorporating photography. Photographs of the sculptures are cited as new works, and labeled as by Bruch in collaboration with Richard Nicol, the go-to guy in Seattle when you want your art photographed for documentation purposes.
Reusing his own sculptures happens again in an amalgamation piece called Rejoinder: An abstract sculpture from 2008 with the same name sits on top of a bookshelf containing butcher-papered thrift-store books bearing the titles of Bruch's personal collection of books. Bruch has an interesting explanation for this over at PORT. And he's also making these landscape-like ink paintings.
If you're anywhere near Portland before August 28, when the show closes, get there. I know I'm going to try. (And I'd also like to see this.)
