Thomas Doyle @ LBP (4.24.10)

Opening in our Project Room, the gallery presents Thomas Doyle's first Los Angeles solo show. Doyle's work mines the debris of memory through the creation of intricate worlds sculpted in 1:43 scale and smaller. Often sealed under glass, the works depict the remnants of things past - whether major, transformational experiences, or the quieter moments that resonate loudly throughout a life.

For 'Collateral Damage,' Doyle continues to explore the impact of memory through his Distillation Series. Based on the premise that a personality can be distilled down to certain key formative events, the work in this series centers on the home and family life. Doyle begins with this safe, archetypal space, then distorts reality through a warped and dreamlike lens, in much the same way the mind recalls events through the fog of time. The result is a world where houses are inverted, earth crumbles away, and people sink into the ground - all trapped under glass and frozen in time.
