K.r.m. Mooney's sculptures, comprised of various metal alloys and organic compounds, are compositions that lure the viewer with their intricate fusion of cast and found materials. Treating space as a primary material, Mooney aligns each sculptural form to the architecture of the gallery in an ongoing process of reorienting the body of the viewer. Possessing a background in jewelry making, Mooney considers how these materials might connect to the body in addition to how they synthesize with one another. The artist is interested in these temporal dynamics that emerge between viewer and artwork, and the response of this relationship to a given environment. Mooney lives and works in Oakland, California. Solo exhibitions include the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco; Bad Reputation, Los Angeles; n/a, Oakland; Important Projects, Oakland and Pied-à-terre, Ottsville, Pennsylvania. Two-person exhibitions include Hester, New York and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco.
