Big Medium

Last Chance - September 26 through November 1, 2014

Three-person exhibition featuring painting, mixed media, and sculpture. Via Big Medium: "Matthew Feyld’s reductive, geometric paintings feature line work overtop a monochromatic canvas, producing deceptively simple compositions. Claire Falkenberg works with photography, collage, and paint to create large-scale images that are ambiguous yet controlled. Jessica Halonen’s idiosyncratic sculptures integrate organic and manufactured materials, while maintaining clear connections to painting and drawing."

Pump Project Art Complex

October 10 through November 8, 2014
