Blue Drift, 2015
Clay & Glazes
This series of works by the artist consists of substantial, approximately circular, 2 ft plus in diameter works in clay. Heavily textured with rich glaze combinations poured over them, these works may seem to suggest landscapes, seascapes, deep space or other inferences to the viewer. In fact, to the artist, these works are non-objective explorations of color, form and surface.

For the past three decades, Lucy Puls has been turning unwanted objects and photos of abandoned domestic environs into insignias of the consumer world. Lucy Puls: [just you] encompasses over 40 objects from 1987-2015, with the past decade being a particular focus. During that time, she has refined her interest in found objects and collage and created several new bodies of work. These works, which range from smaller, diorama-like floor sculptures to complex wall pieces, incorporate photographs, stubbed out cigarettes, kitschy souvenirs, home stereo systems, pop culture cast-offs, and household products.
Although relatively obscure, Puls has created an immediately recognizable aesthetic that, alongside artists like Eva Hesse and Isa Genzken, challenges definitions of how female artists work. By impressing her own rigid self-imposed set of treatments and rules upon discarded objects and environments, Puls transforms how we perceive their value. Often this involves covert investigations, toxic substances, and aggressive treatment of materials usually associated with male sculptors. While flipping this cliché on its head, Puls interrogates these abandoned domestic spaces and castoff objects, and infusing them with a system of values that critiques patriarchal consumerism.

White Buffalo Gallery is excited to present “W(rapper) Dreams” art of Michelle Vo for October running until November 7th.
“Drawing has been that childhood hobby that always seemed to linger. It’s partly why I find myself hesitating to call myself an artist because I’ve always seen what I did as a way to kill time. But over time, I can’t deny the fact that art is more than just a childhood hobby. It’s what keeps me lowkey sane when I’m forced to put priorities in check. Going to school full time or working that 9-5 state job has definitely made me a daydreamer. My artwork is heavily inspired by people, curves, playfulness, and memories that cross my mind during those mundane hours of my day. “W(rapper) Dreams” as my first introduction as an artist is almost like wishful thinking. The thought that maybe I’m being too unrealistic, but it’s something that I hold on to because it keeps me motivated to continue doing what makes me happy.”
Join us for opening reception on Thurs October 8th as well as 2nd Saturday October 10th 5-8pm
