Porter Butts Gallery, Memorial Union
WUD Art is excited to present "Threads, Folds, Rabbit Holes: Complex Webs of Making", an exhibition by Kristy Deetz, located in Porter Butts Gallery at Memorial Union. "Threads, Folds, Rabbit Holes" is a fascinating exhibition consisting of pieces made of a crylic on stretched canvas and digital patterns printed on silk with image transfer and embroidery. As Deetz states, "t he fabric in these paintings acts as a limen or threshold that places the viewer into multiple, often conflicting, layers of space and meaning. In the series the Rabbit or environment may be stretched or manipulated through Photoshop to create a sense of instability, heightened emotion, or a digital sifting. The paintings good-humoredly deconstruct imagery from pop, outsider, and high culture to create new “spaces” of meaning. " Please join us for the opening reception of "Threads, Folds, Rabbit Holes" on Friday, February 16th at the Porter Butts Gallery in Memorial Union, 6-8pm! Light refreshments will be served. "Threads, Folds, Rabbit Holes: Complex Webs of Making" by Kristy Deetz will be showing from February 16th through April 6th, 2018.
