Ty Pownall’s works function as a dialog with the past, present, and future. They examine where contemporary society has positioned itself within the timeline of natural evolution and present us with a model of what our future trajectories may be.

Using found materials, Pownall creates intricate structures within his large scale sculptures mimicking organic forms such as bones and arteries, these organs seem to either evolve or break down just as a living organism would. In taking materials with very specific and narrow purposes and reconstituting them into something beyond anthropomorphic, he alludes to states of evolution happening inside the structures themselves. The works do not exist in a static state like a carcass; they reflect the way movement exists. They reveal, represent, and challenge what is a “natural state”.

In addition to its evolutionary connotations, Ty Pownall’s work also poses viewers with questions of what we recognize as real and simulated. Through conceptualizing how our future landscapes and organisms may be, the idea of future “real” vs. “faux” are also thoughtfully explored.
Ty Pownall received his MFA from Claremont Graduate University. He is a Professor of Fine Art Sculpture at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA. This is his second solo exhibition at the DAC Gallery.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
