Bob Van Breda’s Lost and Found is an immersive exhibition featuring discarded industrial and natural objects that have been transformed into aesthetic forms by the artist’s eye and hand. Channeling his ongoing fascination with objects from everyday life, Van Breda’s sensitivity to the beauty and power of seemingly unwanted things raises questions about authorship, creativity, personal affinities, and cultural purpose. Ranging in size from miniature and handheld to oversize, the artist’s sculptures emphasize materiality, texture, and shape.
