Ryan Trecartin’s sculptures are derived equally from the structured formalism of art and the messy stuff of life, materials and circumstances often converging as narratives of coincidence. Inspired by the flower paintings of his friend George McCracken, Her Puffy Poof (made by Trecartin himself) is designed as an alternative plinth and conceptual landscape: its graffitied pot sprouting industrial tube stems, blossoming with George’s canvases ― their backs further adorned in a crafty copycat manner with rocks and bits of plants. Its title is derived from the particular smell a certain female friend trails when she leaves the bathroom. Incorporating the woman’s perfume and shoes as part the sculpture, Trecartin weaves together a Little Shop of Horrors story of magical association, his punch line: “Puffy poof ― spray ― and she’s gone!”
