Armor / Amor

Free

January 30, 2020 • 6:30 pm

(All times are in PDT)

From his glass and steel studio adjacent to his home in the San Gabriel Mountains, artist and furniture designer Chuck Moffit ensures his work is continuously connected to nature. “I am always reminded of scale and the interdependence of things,” Moffit has said. This is evident in his work, which balances brutalist processes with delicate notions – like his Oshibana table (above) inspired by the Japanese art of floral arrangement and composed of a steel base and bronze petals.

Moffit’s latest works are inspired by his interest in Japanese armor, and appreciation for the nuance in this ancient craft tradition. As the title of the show hints, Moffit continues to be moved by juxtaposition, the austere and the delicate, protection and vulnerability found in nature. In addition to casegoods, tables, seating, and lighting, the show will also debut a series of sculptural tabletop works in bronze.

The collection will be presented at JF Chen on Highland, a massive, industrial antiques showroom for midcentury furniture, accessories and art. Email [email protected] to attend the event.

Exhibition runs through Feb 29.
