Dameon Lester abstracts geologic and glacial peculiarities, complex topographies approximated as mesh polysurfaces; reduced, simplified till they resemble the micro-crystals that make up the macro-phenomenon. These shards are further complicated in their material construction, color and texture; dark and light, shiny and matte, paper and plywood, their individual faces failing to join in a complete whole. The works are at once familiar, from their post-minimalist precedents to the consistency of their digital* origins, but difficult to read.
