Chris Beeston
The Ends of Invention
October - November 2016
Patrick Parrish Gallery is pleased to present The Ends of Invention, the first solo exhibition of work by New York-based artist Chris Beeston. Beeston's fascination with functional objects highlights a belief that people desire deeper, more emotional connections with the objects they encounter every day. His trial-and-error process is a quest to transcend an object or material’s preconceived purpose. Striving for the vocabulary of Apple but on an AmazonBasics budget, these pieces ask one central question: “I wonder if this will work?”
