From the 'infinitesimal to the immense,' Chandler exhibition explores scale Physical size is one thing, but perception is quite another. That distinction becomes loomingly clear in the exhibit "Micro/Macro: The Sculptural Art of Kevin Caron," which appears in the Exhibition Hall at the Chandler Center for the Arts in downtown Chandler, Arizona. "Some people look at my sculptures and see a universe, while others see a molecule," says Caron. The show opens September 6 and runs through October 26. It is free and open to the public.
"Micro/Macro" addresses the size, heft, and the visual perception of three-dimensional forms, while exploring the demands of scale on materials and creation. "I love playing with perception, and using scale is one way to trick viewers' minds," says Caron, who will be available to discuss his artistic perspective and techniques at the artist reception on Friday, September 6 from 6 - 9 p.m. The reception also is free and open to the public.
A longtime Valley resident, Caron has been a full-time sculptor since 2006. He focuses much of his work on the sensuality of shapes and the rise and fall of their sides and junctures while creating sculptures that range in size from palm-sized to monumental. Two ten-foot-tall sculptures are among those included in this exhibit. Named Sculptor of the Year 2012 by Art Trends Magazine, Caron's latest public sculpture is The Seed, which can be seen in the lobby of Chandler's Tumbleweed Recreation Center.
