This event has ended.

Dean Goelz "Migrations," featuring the artist's socially astute drawings and sculptures, depict the slightly odd ways we interact with each other and our environment and the tenuous grip society and culture have on our gentle animal natures.

Cosmic underdogs and nerds, Goelz's human/duck hybrids in particular are both disturbing and familiar, reminding us of the razor's edge distinctions between instinct, personality, and society. Other sculptures in the exhibition include a self-portrait bust frosted like a birthday cake wearing a crown of unlit candles and cut away at the shoulders to reveal the layers inside and a large man in a monster costume with his face coming protruding from the monster's mouth.

Goelz's sensitive, lyrical and detailed drawings also evoke human desires, struggles and foibles. Composed of innumerable precise and minute marks, Goelz's drawings bring attention to the infinite microcosm within each individual.
