Chris Sollars

This summer Brion Nuda Rosch invited Chris Sollars to the SFMOMA to make works using only materials found within the museum. At no point were museum staff made aware of Sollar’s “residency”.

  • The first two are great the last one does not fit with the others. Not that i dont like it, its just more graphic.

  • Love the shadow work. Great stuff.

  • Ami

    I think the titles complete the pieces. “…afternoon shadows” and “…attached with water” makes it kind of transient. I like the humor.

  • Jon

    Took me time to work out the need for context with the second photo but when I got it it all made sense. Fun work

  • jill

    wow. very nice. have done something similar, without a real life skulpture.
