James Oliver Gallery presents: RECONSTRUCT
Works by Benjamin F. Weaver & Mike Tanis.
Closing Reception: Saturday, April 6th // 6-9pm
February 23 - April 6, 2019

Don't miss the last chance to catch RECONSTRUCT featuring works by Benjamin F. Weaver and Mike Tanis! This will also be the closing reception for SACRED GEOMETRY at Hot-Bed. Check out these two wonderful springy shows Saturday, April 6th from 6-9! All are welcome!

Playing on our perceptions of three dimensional forms, Weaver and Tanis encourage viewers to rethink the convention of the "beginning and end". Weaver's acrylic works create a structural entanglement as his use of color and placement drives the eye through abstracted shapes, creating and disproving paths and connections. In Weaver's words, "This duality of interacting visual opposites is what drives this series of work." Tanis' sculptural works have a fluidity encouraged by their unsolvable shapes and intertwining paths. Tanis works with kirigami (or "cut paper") at University of Pennsylvania to create creative solutions in scientific research. His sculptural works split the line between what occurs organically in nature and man-made innovative uses of space and motion.

Don't miss these captivating works on view through April 6 and a second chance to view our show Sacred Geometry at Hot-Bed.
