'Star Tap' by Emily Furr. Furr paints celestial visions that place cool, hard-edged objects within weightless, star-filled voids. Furr’s artwork plays with a codex of motifs, exploring their potential formations through a process of repetition. The artist’s serialized tropes take the shape of tongues laden with hallucinogenic sugar cubes, sloping conveyor belts adorned with astral points, rocket engines with acutely sharp, almost erotic edges, tubes, chains, and myriad metal hardware. Furr’s paintings can be positioned in relation to postmodern artists such as Lee Lozano (American, 1930–99) and Forrest Bess (American, 1911–77), whose depictions of archetypal shapes, colors, and quotidian objects sought to challenge prescribed notions of gender identity.
