Lunch-time tour of the side-by-side solo exhibitions by Douglas Bosley: The Unexplored Map and Scott Espeseth: Signal Bleed .
Douglas Bosley’s large-scale prints lure viewers into a mysterious world of the artist’s construction. His finely detailed mezzotints present a future version of earth where the familiar environment has been eclipsed by engineered ecosystems and mechanical creations run amok. Dramatic tonal contrasts and delicate line lend gravitas to Bosley’s fantastic imagery.
Trained as a printmaker, these days Scott Espeseth works primarily with the simplest of art materials: pencil, pen, and watercolor. His small, meticulously wrought images present places and things that seem animated by a lurking consciousness. These mundane, unpeopled spaces—a backyard, an empty room, a kitchen counter—take on a heightened reality, or a hallucinatory unreality.
This will be a casual tour led by artist Douglas Bosley and gallery director Jody Clowes, and will provide opportunities to ask questions.
