This two-person show parallels the 1970's natural abstractions of Ray K. Metzker and Michael Becotte. Both artists' works reveal their interest in depicting things beyond the documentary sense. These translations of the natural world into abstracted visions are playful, graphic, and open to our own interpretation.
Metzker's tile-like collage series Whimsy has been seen before in sections but never before have so many of these unique images been shown together; 36 will be included in the exhibition. The images read like Rorschach tests and its our own mind and memory that give reason to the shapes and forms.
While Becotte's frames bare more identifying features they remain abstract and even haunted. Use of the strobe light in the dark makes everyday flora appear other-worldly and even he artist himself appears as apparition in these works from the 1973-76 Luminations series.
