Irresistible Forces 

When: June 11-July 13 2014
For her solo show, Irresistible Forces, Tamra Seal has transformed Interface Gallery (486 49th St., Oakland) into a space that resembles a retro sci-fi film set. Massive crystalline shards with green neon tips lay in a pile on the ground, like props, on one side of the gallery. In another corner, translucent, neon pink tubes encircle a white fur muff in what looks like a caged platform for beaming up to space. And across the room, a mysterious glowing object lies behind shimmering, frosted glass, asking to be seen from just out of sight. Seal is interested in creating works with a kind of magnetic aesthetic that draws in the viewer. The intrigue she creates lies in the sleekness and shine of her pieces, in the mystery of their abstract forms, and in the neon color palette she employs. Through this assemblage of otherworldly objects, she aims to provoke reflection on the nature of desire. At the very least, these playful works make you want to look.
