David McCracken, work in progress, 2020.

In Exalt in transmission, David McCracken creates romantic portraits of mechanical transmission.  He is interested in the baroque eloquence of industrial materials, which he fabricates out of steel at a scale that is larger than life. The objects, which have humble or utilitarian beginnings, are transformed at this scale, often portraying a softness that belies their materiality.
