Recently closed - Zachary Royer Scholz: Nothing Is Ever Finished at Eli Ridgway Gallery. My favorite pieces in this excellent show were the ones in which Scholz created a sense of tension by leaning boards or drawers against the wall, stacking steel dividers in perfect yet precarious formations, weaving strips of upholstery foam into a giant ball that looked ready to spring apart at any moment. Action always seemed imminent, and even those framed sections of bubble wrap pictured above made me itch to get under the glass and start popping. The materials Scholz used in the exhibit were actually repurposed from previous projects but here were skillfully transformed into yet new contexts. Sometimes it was fun to guess at the previous life of a coil of stuffed acid-green velvet or a densely-packed globe of delicate wood shavings, but absent that knowledge Scholz's objects still have a droll presence all on their own.
