Garden Gallery, St. Barnabas Lutheran Church, Plymouth, MN (duo exhibit with Keith Miesel), April 2017. Take nothing at face value. In the natural world, a rock formation becomes a street collage. In the urban world, a rusted dumpster becomes a rural landscape. Perspective, color, light or darkness, shape and texture -- realities become abstractions; imagination yields transformations. This exhibit pairs ambiguous and abstract imagery from natural and urban settings. In this gallery, the pairs are posted consecutively--1 &2, 3&4, etc with the "natural" abstract first. The natural abstracts are from various areas in Eastern Minnesota (including Minneapolis, Interstate Park near Taylors Falls, Minnehaha Creek) and northern California (Yosemite); the urban images are from Manhattan, Minneapolis, and Iowa City.
