Talley Dunn Gallery is pleased to present new drawings, sculptures and a major site-specific installation by Joseph Havel in the artist’s upcoming solo exhibition, Plus or Minus.  Joseph Havel’s artwork employs everyday objects such as fabric, used clothing and books as means to explore the construction of identity through the re-working of found materials or texts, often as a way to form new meaning by building upon the significance of its original context.  For other pieces, Havel utilizes text so that its initial framework is retained and explored, in an attempt to push the viewer to consider other interpretations of possible meaning. Inspired by the writings of David Foster Wallace and David Mitchell, the artist seeks to present the various interpretations and levels of meaning embodied within each work.   By setting no determined explanation or reading of an artwork, Havel presents the complex, interwoven nature of meaning itself.
