Previous Shows: 2013: Repetition, Rhythm, and Pattern.: Kim Beck
Kim Beck’s work urges a reconsideration of the built environment - the peculiar street signs, gas station banners, overgrown weeded lots, and self-storage buildings — bringing the banal and everyday into focus. For this exhibit, Beck works with primed linen to build security fences. Each fence is flawed with snags or buckles, reduced to collapsed grids or ineffective fragments, failing to protect. Part of a larger series of fences made of different materials, including a wall drawing, etching, stack of silkscreen prints on cardboard, digital prints and charcoal on paper.
