Erik Bluhm - "Cooperate With The Energy And Anything That Happens"
12 January—9 February 2008
Reception for the artist on Saturday, 12 January from 7—10 pm
For this show at David Patton Los Angeles, Bluhm will present a number of medium and large-scale collages. The images form symbols and shapes or, as Bluhm describes them, "iconic images and shapes that are forms identifiable as significant, yet only inherently. They withhold too much to qualify as concretely vital, yet in their shapes and designs are embedded the often thorny markers of being, sometimes cryptically representative, sometimes transparent and spiritual."
