Adrian Culverson: Smorgasbord

July 1, 2023 12:00 pm July 6, 2023 6:00 pm

Gallery hours: Noon-6:00pm

Smorgasbord is a collection of paintings and sculptures that revolve around abstracted formal investigations of colour, shape, and play. Hand-sewn fabric compactions augmented and calcified with heavily applied color. Bizarrely deformed three-dimensional structures with rough and sandy honeycombed surfaces resembling computer generated imagery, a motion graphic still-life. Large swaths of smooth colorful frostings, seemingly dipped like hardened candy shell, an assortment of stuffed shapes cascade and pose as evolved protuberance. A short explosive burst with unknown musculature, like a cartoon super highway or beautiful puff-cloud. – Aimee Gougen
