UNI Gallery of Art to present 'Gather the Folds of This

Veil and Scatter Them'

Monday, August 24 through Saturday, September 19

 

"Gather the Folds" artists John Siblik and Elissa Cox Wenthe will present a lecture at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 3, in KAB 111, which will be followed by an opening reception in the KAB South lobby. Funded in part by an in-kind donation from Upper Iowa University in Fayette, Iowa.

The artists state, "Both the human body and the natural landscape inform this collaboration as well as the exploration of cultural constructs commonly held for both. We each think about systems and structures that are inherit in both the body and natural world; whether that is the circulatory system, or watersheds; skin, or mantle. The idea of the canopy or veil explores our shared interest in finding meaning and visual poetry in both the human body and the landscape. As one winds and navigates through the canopy, discovery of the microcosmic will become evident and draw one in for closer examination and at the same time reflect on ones physical self. As the exhibition developed the narrative became apparent as well as a logical pathway that we followed to create the work."
