Charles Mary Kubricht, The Figure is Always Ground

Our pals over at Marfa Book Company are having an opening this Saturday, October 1st at 6 pm, to celebrate Charles Mary Kubricht’s installation The Figure is Always Ground. As Tim Johnson, curator and owner of Marfa Book Company, explains: “The work, which covers four walls, the ceiling and the floor, features a painted dazzle, a form of nautical camouflage used, primarily, during the First World War” (Kubricht is also using this technique on storage containers at the High Line). The Figure is Always Ground runs through January 15, 2012 — be sure to check it out if you’re passing through Marfa.
