Marginal Utility is proud to present Leaning Bypass #4 (Chromium), a solo exhibition of recent work by the Maine based artist Robert Younger.
August 2012 I was staying in a house that had a number of very simple cabinets. They looked like the sort of do it your-self concepts found in an old copy of Popular Mechanics Magazine. Each had two sliding rectangular panels with a hole for your finger to push right or left (open/close). Very simple except that in this case the homeowner chose to paint each panel a different color (yellow ocher / raw sienna, cobalt blue / titanium white) forcing me the viewer to draw a comparison or think about the juxtaposition. I could also slide the panels revealing the interior space and change the scale relationship of one panel to the other.
Having thought about these panels I started doing drawings of colored rectangles arranged on the page each with a small circle drawn to represent the finger pull. Still interested I decided to fabricate my own panels but in doing so made a few decisions. I eliminated the cabinet (interior space) and focused on the panels. The wall of the cabinet became a frame just large enough to hold the panels. Instead of a double track I went with no track so that the panels were flush mounted and not capable of sliding. This was done to move away from a practical application and closer to an artistic concern with references.
