Tonight is an opening reception for “Cold Boy’s Fire/Digital Physical” a show composed of two artists, Bryan Morello and Augustus Thompson. Both artists work in multiple mediums, and have a sculptural approach to their practice. Morello combines various objects into his work which are displayed in modular constructions that mimic dioramas or mini installation spaces. He also has performed renditions of his writing, most recently at ALTAR a traveling curatorial endeavor from San Francisco. Thompson uses mixed mediums to create images and objects that speak to the world of collage. In this we see works that are rooted in the juxtaposition of mark making, texture, color, and found/rendered images which react in a contained dialogue within each piece. An ongoing discussion that can be seen in this work is the investigation of the materiality within his concluded works. Find time tonight to visit this show tonight, 7-10pm.
We all know that Adobe Books is threatened to close, but this will not affect their efforts in their curatorial duties and obligations to continue their shows. This is a sign of dedication and that they are working hard to keep their space and programming alive. Support their fundraising efforts on Ebay Auctions, and Indiegogo.
