All in the Delivery : Patrick Collier at Truckenbrod Gallery, Corvallis

In his latest exhibition “All in the Delivery,” Collier uses corrugated boxes and packaging materials from shipments as the foundation for the seven sculptures in the show, ranging in size from tabletop deconstructed pieces to free-standing monoliths. He builds upon the work by adding unconventional, even mundane items, including a plastic mattress bag, red clown noses, colorful self-adhesive bandage wraps, and a large, multicolored ball of used painter’s tape. The sum of those unorthodox parts creates thought-provoking sculptural forms, while simultaneously displaying some of Collier’s intentionally unadorned construction methods.
