Laura Fritz & Rick Silva: Encounters

October 3, 2020 - March 7, 2021

Free
A still from a video depicts a digitalized figure with sharp, geometric features, colored in shades of violet and blue. Innumerable lines connected to the figure are swept into the bottom right of the frame, creating a sense of motion, and vary in color, from shades of red and orange to blue and purple.

Encounters pairs works by Oregon artists Laura Fritz (b. 1970) of Portland and Rick Silva (b. 1977) of Eugene. Together, Silva’s web-based, audio-visual piece The Silva Field Guide to Birds of a Parallel Future and Fritz’s three-dimensional Alvarium 2 suggest interactions between the natural and the digital worlds, human and animal activity, and knowing and not knowing. Each artist operates in this malleable space, inviting a sense of wonder and further inquiry.

How do observation and speculation shape our own understandings of reality?

Image: Laura Fritz (b. 1970). Alvarium 2 (detail with video still), 2019. Wood, reflector, video. 72 ½ x 15 x 21 ¾ inches. Image courtesy the artist.
