CFile Chief Editor Garth Clark penned a glowing critique about Matt Wedel’s exhibition, Peaceable Fruit at L.A. Louver gallery (Los Angeles, November 18 – December 30, 2015). In it, he promised to run a companion piece. Wedel works large in ceramics, calling his sculptures “5,000-pound eggshells.” They’re better appreciated when they’re seen in concert with the other works, their size given context by how they’re installed in the gallery.
Wedel, in a short interview we posted here, says he enjoys working large because:
“I just like walking through my works and walking around them and building inside of my works. That’s just so exciting to me.”
Please enjoy this gallery of installation images, courtesy of L.A. Louver. Be sure to walk among these large works yourself if you get the chance.

Marvelous coverage of Matt Wedel’s exhibit! Great to have commentary with companion piece, interview and photos! But out of respect for my fine colleagues at the gallery, would you please correct the name of the venue? It’s capital L.A. (as in Los Angeles) Louver, not “La Louver”, which has a different meaning and pronunciation. Thank you! (see: http://lalouver.com/)
