This event has ended.

Davidson Gallery presents Impossible Objects, an exhibition featuring the work of Frea Buckler, Jenna Krypell, Gabi Mitterer, Ricardo Paniagua, Richard Roth, and Matthew Shlian. The term “impossible object” generally refers to two-dimensional representations of three-dimensional objects that cannot physically exist as such. These optical illusions are accepted or rejected by the brain which, even after understanding their illusory nature, can still have trouble making sense of the image.

The exhibition consists of sculptural work that is a take on those illusory figures. Each sculpture uses geometric abstraction or repetition of form and references or pays deference to various genres, including (but not limited to) Op-Art, Concretism, and Neo-plasticism. All the sculptures in Impossible Objects are highly detailed, crafted, and finished, utilizing line and color to high effect. The combinations can be unsettling even while being aesthetically luscious and with a visual style that lures the viewer’s eye, whether intentionally or sub-consciously.
