In Royce Allen Hobbs’ The Sunset Ceases to Delight, we are presented with the used and repurposed water from a sensory deprivation tank. When sensory overload and unfocus is the everyday, the experience of deprivation is shocking and challenging. The banality of water in a jerrycan is demanding; don’t stop at the water’s surface.

In the accompanying sculptures, all Untitled, the underlying component is the disposal and reintegration of past occupations--the fall off of an experience once had. A disabled horn speaker, dried cow’s trachea, and abandoned wasp nest share visual and audible silences analogous to a home once lived in, air once breathed, and announcements no longer made. All four works have a subtle relationship to each other in that they are elusive, predominately white and question our needs for artistic fulfillment; to a degree that fosters intimacy.
