Boomerangs with the scraps of raw wood from which they were carved. The shapes float and hover in the space as if the act of throwing a boomerang has been caught in stages and suspended onto the walls, moving the viewer’s eye and body in a circle around the room. The open, airiness of the gallery is reminiscent of the open field in Bucks County, Pennsylvania where Orozco practices throwing his ever-expanding collection of boomerangs. When considered, the sport makes perfect sense within the terms of his work. A boomerang itself is a curved surface, and when successfully thrown the object cuts through the air in the shape of a broad circle. Orozco recently began designing his own boomerangs, experimenting with the creation of wooden prototypes. Inner Cuts focuses on the leftovers of this process, the shapes organically and accidentally formed from the negative space in the wood.
