basic level of organizational structure in a complex
body or system that serves as a foundation for the
rest." The four artists in this exhibit foreground
basic aesthetic structures and systems and
transform them into the actual finished product.
Their spare, color-rich paintings symbolize both
obsession and resolution. Raymond Thunder-Sky's
drawings often fetishize the "infrastructures"
of buildings, streets, and even social systems. In
a portfolio of prints created exclusively for
"Infrastructure," we'll be "abstracting" from some of
Thunder-Sky's most elemental drawings, allowing a
new way to approach and examine his work not as
representations but as preoccupations with what's underneath
both reality and the way we perceive it.
