September 16th – October 25th, 2014
Opening Reception Thursday, September 25th 6-8pm
Our upcoming group exhibition Pulp focuses on the creative potential of paper, both as a substance and a conceptual point of departure. The exhibition will feature works by Rix Jennings, Jon Lee, Gwendolyn Plunkett, Delaney Smith, and guest artist Curtis Gannon.
Pulp showcases works that explore and manipulate the materiality of paper itself, pushing a traditional medium into new dimensions. Artists Rix Jennings and Delaney Smith create three-dimensional form by casting handmade paper. Primarily interested in the relationships between material, form, and function, Smith’s wall installation is composed of book-like units cast with nonsensical words that create both a visual and aural texture. Jennings’s organic forms invite the viewer to reflect on the quite beauty of paper in its raw and imperfect states. Printing on bamboo paper for the first time, master printer Jon Lee’s new series investigates the visual manifestations of the golden ratio in printed media. Gwendolyn Plunkett uses re-purposed books to create a visual language of texture and mark making, and THE MISSION artist Curtis Gannon uses comic books as his primary media to explore the functionality of the comic book as a platform for communication.
Join us for the opening reception for Pulp on Thursday, September 25th from 6:00-8:00pm!
