SDAI is pleased to present “Appropriated Touch”, a solo project by San Diego-based artist Daniel Barron Corrales, opening October 7, 2016 at SDAI Project Space in Horton Plaza. The exhibition will run until Sunday, November 6, 2016.
For this exhibition Daniel Barron Corrales has created a body of work that explores color, textures, and interaction through a series of textile environments and sculptures. Corrales uses textile as his media of choice because of its amorphous nature and ability to be reset. The final work is only achieved after physical interaction between artwork and audiences.
“Appropriated Touch” is constructed entirely using byproducts of the fashion and textile design industries. He has selected these materials as an appropriation of their ready-made color and texture. Ultimately the work explores the infinite collaborate potential through the hands of others.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Daniel Barron Corrales is a San Diego-based artist. He spent his youth working at his mother’s stall at a local flea market selling textiles. The memories and experiences he has from growing up among this colorfully vibrant and textually diverse environment has left a lasting impression that is expressed directly through his work.
