Heaps and Hives

Nadine Bariteau, Simon Frank and Alexis Granwell

Curated By: Anne Cibola

January 14 - February 26, 2011
Opening Reception: Friday, January 14

Incorporating a range of media related to the creation of multiples, Heaps and Hives explores environmental concerns by examining patterns of accumulation and the inference of a breaking point. Nadine Bariteau’s work demonstrates the tension between nature and the manufactured world. Simon Frank’s work calls attention to the friction between nature and the industrialized environment. Alexis Granwell’s Tunnel Series explores cycles, structures and deterioration through abstract form. Collectively the works in this exhibition challenge us to consider the environmental and psychological limits to our actions.
