About The Work

In Exit, as with many recent sculptures, McCaslin addresses emotional states through the use of gestural, visceral and sometimes literal use of non-organic materials in a very organic way. Among other readings, Exit can be read silently as (No) Exit, the 'No' signifying the circuitous and ultimately definitive 'end' of numerous paths, roads taken, or lives lived. The electrical life force that travels through each conduit has, ultimately, no exit to make. Much of McCaslin's work deals with the intersection of nature and technology. He combines everyday construction materials or consumer electronics in a way that may invoke chaos or disorder, or formalism and minimalism. He works aesthetically with these materials, bringing our attention to an aspect of a man-made environment that is frequently overlooked, taken for granted or simply not thought of in an art context at all.
