A pair of Indianapolis-based artists will be the first featured in iMOCA’s at the Temporary Contemporary  in the Murphy Art Center in Fountain Square when their show of installation and sculpture opens Dec. 4

Brose Partington and Jeffrey S. Martin’s show, Projected Curiosity, runs through January 16th.

Partington’s work focuses on motion and how it effects time, patterns, and the cycles of history. “I have represented my ideas about movement through the use of motors, electronics, and the mechanisms I develop,” he said. “Although the creation of the idea and the mechanism are distinctly different processes, if the work is successful, there is an inevitable and natural reconciliation of the two.”

Recently, Partington’s work has explored the natural world versus mankind’s created world. “This work reflects the inherent conflict of space between humans and nature, and it emphasizes how those elements can interact differently,” he said. “I want to continue to investigate these ideas and create ways to represent them in urban and natural environments, but instead of using motors and electronics I want to incorporate the existent kinetic energy of objects to power my works.”

Martin’s work focuses on connecting with the audience, finding common ground.    “I am most interested in creating a dialogue with the viewer that is derived from a common experience,” Martin said. “I do not limit my work to any one medium, but rather utilize a variety of traditional and non-traditional media to make this connection.”    He said his goal is to create a form of escapism and suspend time. “A disconnection to the outside world is achieved,” Martin added. “Ultimately, it is an experience that I am creating for the viewer. In doing so, I am attempting to cross barriers between media and expand barriers of what has traditionally been perceived as art.”    For more information call (317) 450-6630  The museum is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Thursday through Saturday except during show installation.
