Michael Tillyer: Portent Incidentals

Michael Tillyer:  Portent Incidentals

Sunday, September 13 - Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Hampden Main and Studio Galleries   
Free and open to the public

In his artist statement, he explains, " Passages from our most important texts seem to convey portents, yet the narratives used to deliver these vital messages portray the incidental, events that as soon as they occur are finished." In his portrayals, each installation combines reclaimable material (steel, wood, glass, sand) and sets the model of the figure in the representation of the landscape. Pictured is a work in progress: Model of the Turgid Man on Represented Placid Sea.
