In this new body of work, Micah Lexier merges his interest in the quality of marks made by the human hand with the polish of an object made by a machine.
The series of sculptures consists of opaque and mysterious line drawings that are the result of a hidden creative process. Each sculpture is in fact a portion of a tracing from a photograph. The subjects of those photographs are unlikely to be revealed or in self-evidence from merely looking at the sculptures. Whilst these works look intentional, the viewer might never be sure if they are looking at an abstract drawing or a specific image.

Once again Micah Lexier entices us to be attracted to his sculpture as a beautifully made object and more. When looking at the work intuition would suggest that there is a system or reason behind its existence, but at the same time one could be comfortable in the challenge of never quite knowing what it is that one is looking at.
