Gary LaPointe Jr

( updraft ) (2023)

Gary LaPointe Jr's work grapples with the material constructs embedded in the shifting frameworks of the built and natural environments and how this shapes identity construction. He produces sculptures, process-based drawings and works on paper that navigate and mine the material systems around us and questions the relationships, and rituals within them. LaPointe’s artistic exploration does not adhere to a linear path but rather sheds light on diverse themes encompassing changing environments, queerness, desire and the construction and decline of language, form and materiality.
