Pace Gallery Hong Kong is showcasing a new solo exhibition by American artist, Joel Shapiro. Eponymously titled, the show presents a range of artwork from the past 30 years of the New York-based artist’s career.

Shapiro has always challenged the invisible line between figuration and abstraction. Viewing one of his geometric sculptures, many of which look like stick figures in three dimensions, is a new experience each time you walk around the piece and observe how it changes with the surrounding space.

Standout works include two wooden sculptures Shapiro created in the early ’90s that are entwined to guide your eyes like signposts up the walls of the room. Also on view are newer, and somewhat heavier artwork, such as a two-part wall-mounted sculpture and a lithe, dynamic bronze in the third gallery.

“I am interested in those moments when it appears that it is a figure and other moments when it looks like a bunch of wood stuck together—moments when it simultaneously configures and disfigures,” the artist has previously said when describing his work.

Joel Shapiro opened earlier this month and will run through July 20 at Pace Hong Kong.
