Philip Tice and Polly Purvis: Traditions Upended

May 5 - June 25

A Dutch landscape is superimposed onto a patchwork-like color block design. A windmill and houses sit in the foreground, rainbow swaths of color sit in the background.

In the meta-physical landscapes of painter, Philip Tice and the re-imagined artifacts of sculptor, Polly Purvis, echoes of the modern and post-modern are juxtaposed with earlier, and more traditional, artistic movements – futurism spirals into a Dutch landscape, abstraction becomes scientific illustration, and industrial machinery morphs into organic matter. Merging the contemporary with the classical, the natural with the industrial, each artist provokes reconsideration of not only the real world we created, but also the ones we only imagined.
