"Infrastructure: Abstractions by Alex

Bartenberger, Evan Hildebrandt,

Chad Rasmussen and Michael Weber."

Opening reception January 6, 2012, 6 to 10

pm. Closing reception February 11, 2012, 6 to

10 pm.
"Infrastructure" is defined as "the most

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.
