April 24 – May 29, 2010
Reception: Saturday, April 24, 2010 – 6:30-8:30 pm
Project 4 presents a two-person exhibition featuring paintings by Tricia Keightley and sculptures by Jenn Figg. By discerningly entwining a pastiche of industrial and commercial scraps, these artists interpret the urban environment and create composed yet frenetic arrangements.
Works by Keightley and Figg incorporate materials and objects that take on new energies when removed from their historical, functional or physical context. Keightley, through her meticulous abstract acrylic paintings representing, for example, antiquated engineering elements, and Figg, through her technique of combining found objects and commercial items with an eccentric sensibility, depict intriguing contemplations on our past, present and future material culture.
