Kevin Zucker’s new solo exhibition is called Search Within Results and comprises paintings, photographs and works on paper that are composed of bits of other works. What brings these works together is their basis in arrangement. Zucker’s imagery is all about categorizing and it is the photographs that immediately jump out as still lifes of objects referencing the titles of the pieces. Rhode Island School of Design, Columbia University and Cooper Union are all represented by a series of objects that make up three different tableaux. Are these themes depictions of the various stages of the artist’s training? Whatever the case may be, they do draw the eye right into the piece and creating a narrative is a cinch. It’s limiting it to just one that’s the difficulty.
