Brad Tucker’s exhibition, Standard Tan, includes a collection of wood, fabric, and painted sculptural objects that explore color, texture, and language. Often mimicking tools and utilitarian objects, Tucker’s work plays with the loose ends of craftsmanship at the border between painting and sculpture. Tucker’s experience as an artist, skateboarder, musician, and teacher reveals itself in his work through the use of abstracted shapes, text, and sound elements encountered in his daily life.
