Opening Reception October 10, 7 – 10pm

Unearthing new meaning in images pilfered from the detritus bins of the electronic age, ESCAPE ROUTES/disposable comfort constructs psychic landscapes for internal weather patterns. The models from an industrial safety catalog populate a distracted world of imperfect isolation and impenetrable protection. Endless loops trace the pulse of elusive escape routes, plotted and re-plotted, the internal blueprints for self-preservation.
