Eli Ridgway is pleased to present Boundary Lines, new work by Andy Vogt. Based on the sculptural potential of lumberyard detritus, Vogt uses additive and reductive approaches to delineate the facets of raw material. His vision of well-worn, structural demise finds a language in the crisp edges and broken off-cuts of discarded plywood - scavenged from disintegrating Bay Area architectures. For Boundary Lines, the artist will mine the transitional space of the gallery's entry hallway to produce a mixture of site specific installation and sculpture, where saw marks become a drawing medium and fractured lath plays in the formalism of line weight.
