Template Days: Avantika Bawa & May Tveit
This exhibition features two mid-career artists who both examine and work with industrial forms and materials in sculpture, drawing, and printmaking.
Bawa has used brightly painted pink metal scaffolding in remote outdoor installations, made small stackable multiples in metal, and embossed black and white monoprints that show the utilitarian structure as a variable form. Tveit has continually used her access to a cardboard manufacturing company to produce large-scale wall works with corrugated sheets, cutting and stacking them into complex geometric forms. She has also used cardboard templates to make monoprints that possess a radiating glow and references to various architectural sites.
