February 11-March 28, 2015 – In an installation created especially for the University Art Museum, Albuquerque-based collaborators Larry Bob Phillips and David Leigh create an exhibition of fantastic and grotesque drawings that aim to overwhelm the audience with vast references and chaotic narrative. Phillips and Leigh create larger-than-life “pendants” in their studio.
Using an approach that could be considered an architect’s answer to large-scale collage making, images are painted on thin plywood veneer, cut out, and then curated in the gallery. Known for their giant drawings, the artists create a cartoon-like, horrific yet comedic landscape. Sponsored by the FUNd at CSU.
Visiting Artist Lecture and Opening Reception, Wednesday, February 11th, Griffin Concert Hall, 5:00 p.m., followed by a reception in the museum, 6 p.m.
All events are FREE and open to the public
