Abstruse Daydreaming
Meredith Setser and Jay Zerbe
February 6th – April 9th, 2016
Hyndman Gallery
Opening Reception: February 5th, 5 - 8 PM (CST)

Abstruse Daydreaming features fiber scapes by Meredith Setser and contemporary abstract paintings by Jay Zerbe.

Setser’s installations utilize printed motifs that reference patterns found in urban infrastructure, agricultural & eco systems. Applied to handmade felt these substrates are then cut, sewn, layered, and folded into a sculptural installation. The process of felt making, which employs heat, moisture, and aggressive friction, mirrors the geological phenomenon of the creation of the earth strata. Heavily intertwined with ideas, Setser’s process and materials are most important.  Etching, a process that at its very core involves corrosion and decay, and printed layers of information refer to the collective, stratified memory of a particular place. Setser is a printmaker and textile artist currently employed as an assistant professor of printmaking at the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis.

Learn more about Meredith Setser at her website.

Zerbe’s abstract paintings are informed by the landscape and strike a balance between order and chaos.The appearance of order breaks down under scrutiny, which mirrors Zerbe’s understanding of reality. The core of the work revolves around juxtaposing these diverse structures and their uncertain references. Zerbe is a contemporary abstract painter originally from Chicago, but now resides in Northwest Indiana.

Interactive Works by Jonah Ortiz
February 6th-April 9th, 2016
Brincka/Cross & Susan Block Galleries
Opening Reception: February 5th, 5 - 8 PM (CST)

Placebo features interactive sculptures by Jonah Ortiz that explore how we relate to objects and become desensitized by convenience, experience and time.

Ortiz’s low brow sense of humor is prevalent in his work but the underlying theme is what he calls, “creative experiment in humanity.” The sculptures are designed to spark intrigue and create dialogue among his audience. His artwork is a construct of a lifetime of experiences, summed up into thought provoking one-liners. Each piece delivers a narrative masked by jokes and glitter, but alluding to a social critique, and questioning how people perceive, and react to the norms of our society.
