Bolivar Gallery 

Yoonmi Nam’s work considers cross-cultural experience and sense of transience through observations of everyday objects and occurrences. In her prints, drawings, sculptural works, and installations, she uses familiar disposable objects and cut flower arrangements as subject matter and explores their materiality, ephemerality, persistence, and the common and extraordinary way we structure our surroundings. 

Visiting Artist Talk: Taylor Baldwin

Thursday, November 21, 2019 - 7:00pm

Taylor Baldwin's work seeks to conflate the act of making with an act of violence - or unmaking - whether enacted physically or cognitively, whether enacted on an object, an image, or an idea. In his practice as a whole, he uses sculpture, video, and installation as a tool to stitch together and/or confuse the discordant relationship between a physical object and the cognitive experience of it.

Visiting Artist Talk: Jason Craighead

Date: 
Friday, November 15, 2019 - 12:00pm

Jason Craighead's paintings are a dynamic and expressive combination of acrylic paint, oil pastel, and graphite markings on canvas. His works emits an infectious, fervent energy; where every splatter, drip, and scratch conveys the artist’s emotional and profound spirit. Craighead's work echoes the well-known words of Edward Hopper, “If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint”.
