Partial Installation of cardboard "supper" table
at gallery reception/residency

David Connelly, one of the creative partners of DOSSHAUS, told me that the cardboard table could provide a space for large dinner parties. The chairs, however, would not be as cooperative.  Diligent-whimsy of Claes Oldenburg's Store 1961 prevails throughout the exhibition.  Connelly and Taylor work continually on creating familiar objects from cardboard, black and white paint and paper.  Similarly to Oldenburg, they are finding alternative ways to promote their cardboard world.  The exhibition consists of small items like wristwatches to musical instruments (guitars, violins), vintage guitar speakers, drum set, to 11' dining table, compact car and clothing designed and worn by the artists. Also, there are framed documenting photographs.  Like Oldenburg (1961), the prices are modest right now.  Hindsight is better left for philosophers instead of wise art collectors with future anecdotes to share. 

The Balinese proverb: "We have no art we do everything as beautifully as we can."
 Such is the artful existence of DOSSHAUS.
