Opening Reception: "Threads, Folds, Rabbit Holes"
The Wisconsin Union
Friday, February 16, 2018
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. Please join us for the opening reception of "Threads, Folds, Rabbit Holes" on Friday, February 16th from 6-8pm! Light refreshments will be served. "Threads, Folds, Rabbit Holes" is a fascinating exhibition consisting of pieces made of acrylic on stretched canvas and digital patterns printed on silk with image transfer and embroidery. As Deetz states, "the 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." "Threads, Folds, Rabbit Holes: Complex Webs of Making" by Kristy Deetz will be showing from February 16th through April 6th, 2018.
