Laumeier Sculpture Park: Saturday, 7 April 2018

Farid Rasulov, Tree of Skewers, 2018

Farid Rasulov: 1001 Skewers
in the Aronson Fine Arts Center Whitaker Foundation Gallery
April 7–July 29, 2018.
Free Opening Reception: Saturday, April 7, 11:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
The exhibition is curated by Dana Turkovic 

Farid Rasulov: 1001 Skewers is a large-scale, indoor sculptural installation using more than 1,000 stainless-steel kebab skewers, with configurations based on Azeri fairy tales. Bird #1, 2018, is a monumental, outdoor sculpture commission—the fiberglass artwork is a formal extraction of geometric, abstract shapes found in Azeri carpet patterns. Rasulov’s two installations are whimsical, humorous applications of design techniques inspired by Rasulov’s heritage in Azerbaijan. Rasulov states, “This exhibition is devoted to different situations, where each object in contact with other, similar objects passes from the state of the object to the state of the story—the idea is born, and life begins.”

Erica Popp Studios + Gallery: Friday, 2 March 2018

Join us for the opening reception for Separate / Illuminate, the second exhibition at Erica Popp Studios + Gallery, Friday, March 2 at 5 8 PM.

Amber Adkins creates mixed media work as an exploration of loss and resiliency. Her abstracted images of the natural world are are cut up and hand-stitched back together. The repairs in black linen are highlighted with gold thread, a nod to the Japanese art of Kintsugi. Her imagery and color pallet are reminiscent of Pacific Northwest Landscapes, and speak to feelings of separation and sadness, but also of healing and hope.

The exhibition comprises  Photographs, large-scale digital prints, and vinyl text paginate the gallery walls referencing over-sized pages from a book. Pieces of text and abstracted, symbolic images loosely connect threads of research and meandering thoughts on the library. A compass-like instrument, an archive of sorts, firmly positions itself central in the space. Objects, such as magenta finger-cots, a chunk of magnesium carbonate, 3D printed totems and a meteor fragment tell a story rich in materiality and lost in contemplation, and  a single-channel video, the Performing the Book
