Crooked Timber | New Works by Brian Napier

  • REDLINE

Curated by Odessa, Crooked Timber investigates the relationship between human beings and the Earth; deconstructing the paradoxes between self and place. Brian Napier's sculptural works draw parallels between natural objects and societal growth. The making of these objects is a disruption of the natural processes which the work examines. And in this way, the exhibition space serves as an open casket to what was, and a monument to the eternal.

  • CPAC

Americans have long been divided in their attitudes concerning the trade-off between national security and personal privacy. Much of the debate has been focused on government surveillance, and how the continuous observation of people’s day-to-day lives is being used to collect data.

The Air In The Room | New Works By Tom Hoitsma

  • Michael Warren Contemporary

This series of new works has a physicality that fuels the energy in a room even as they give impressions of place. The large size of the works are heavily layered paint on 4" deep canvases that read as sculpture. The confident use of color and assertive brushstrokes create a dynamic visual experience; Hoitsma really does achieve his goal to change the air in the room.
