The artists in this exhibition use the act of making as a process of thinking. They investigate relationships between ideas, materials and things. They take familiar materials and ways of making things and present us with new kinds of objects. Whether it is crocheting with paint, building structures that de-stabalize our preconceptions of space, or transforming found images to create a new idea through collage, these artists challenge set ideas of how things should be.
This exhibition features new works by artists with a connection to the west coast: Angela Teng, Shelley Penfold and Jess Willa Wheaton, and site-specific installations by Nicholas Galanin, Cedric, Nathan and Jim Bomford.
