Jay Hardman at Space 1026

Space 1026 is pleased to announce Unsustainable, the first solo exhibition by Philadelphia based artist Jay Hardman. Drawing from his experience within the construction industry, Hardman creates small scale sculptures and installations that examine contemporary building practices and their effect on communities. Recognized primarily for his cake sculptures which focus on landscape this new body of work directs attention towards the construction site. Produced with common building materials and utilizing a miniature-hobbyist’s aesthetic these works exhibit both an architectural formalism and quaint domesticity that merges sculpture and model-making. Please join us for an opening reception with the artist on First Friday, January 6th, 2012 at Space 1026.

Jay Hardman is a new member of Vox Populi and has shown nationally and locally including exhibitions at Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, Little Berlin, Projects Gallery, The Philadelphia Art Alliance and Arcadia University, as well as at Art Centers and University Galleries in Oklahoma, Michigan, Nevada and New York State.
