Eric Carlson: Entanglements

February 22 2021 - May 22 2021

Carlson is an archaeologist and archaeological illustrator whose work has greatly influenced his art, and has trained him to see time and the spaces we occupy as accumulations of interwoven lives and constant change. This exhibition is comprised of 15 new, complex, large-scale paintings that explore the entanglements of living organisms and processes of change. Time, in these paintings, is durational allowing depictions of movement and the flow of energy. The imagery is inspired by real life experiences the artist has had in a variety of wilderness settings throughout Montana, Alaska, and Hawaii.
