Further information
Kent Rush's work often focuses on the mundane: a ball of twine or a cement curb, for example. These objects are vehicles for his exploration of purely formal elements, especially tone, texture, and line. Whereas meaning plays a secondary role, Rush's soft gray images trigger memories and replay in the viewer's consciousness.
