"Awakening"

September 8 - September 30, 2018

Opening Reception

Saturday, September 8, 2018
6pm to 9pm

“Awakening” is a body of work focusing on the wild, overgrown, and enchanted natural world. This series alludes to the idea of the domesticated gone feral. Sharing scenes of new growth and oneness between the creature and land in nature. The imagery becomes a meditation on what creation may be like if left alone by the hand of man to flourish. Through large and small-scale sculptures and mixed media paintings, animals have a strong presence as they roam and become one with moody, inhibited spaces. These haunting, yet whimsical works, are looking to evoke the imagination and “awaken” the human soul. 

The Berlin Food Factory food truck will be at the reception. Mathias and Silke Bugge will prepare and sell their one of a kind authentic brats and German food.
