Opening Reception: Thursday, March 10, 4-7 PM
Richland College’s Brazos Gallery hosts “Construct,” featuring Nathan Green, Thor Johnson, Jeff Mueller and Monica Vidal. The exhibition contains undulating video patterning, meticulously crafted narratives, and spatial/perceptual inquiries. The vibrant and multi-faceted art works challenge and captivate viewers while avoiding prescribed methodologies. The exhibition will take place from March 10 through 27, 2011 with an opening reception on Thursday, March 10 from 4-7 PM.
The works in the exhibition offer a complex assortment of experiences united by a perceptual bombast. Each artist creates from individualized methodologies –appropriated graffiti, digital mandalas, personal mythology, and spatial inquiry— offering contemporary diversity charged with visual dynamism.
About his choices for the exhibition, curator Ryder Richards says, “The ability to attribute rational constructs upon art simultaneously sabotages and enlightens the viewing experience. It seems to be what we do: ask questions of the work we find compelling. For this exhibit the artist’s pieces offer stories of individual construction and process, but in the end can no longer be contained by rational answers as the works form an individual experience.”
