The Invisible City is a joint show by architect/furniture designer Eve Fineman and artist Damon Locks, both showing individual bodies of new work. Though different in medium and expression, the work that they do ideologically crosses over in many ways.
As a designer and design educator, Eve Fineman approaches her work with a social consciousness. Her current project, a sustainable furniture system called Interstice, incorporates an innovative use of materials and processes. All of the pieces in her designs can be interchanged, reconfigured or melted down and reused, presenting a closed-loop system of manufacture.
Artist Damon Locks is a Printmaker that works with digital printing, silkscreen and relief printing. His pieces stem from a desire to explore and comment on ideas of culture and community. The work has aspects of literal political intent but it also displays a looseness and abstraction that enlivens the issues at hand.
The Invisible City speaks to unrealized potential, the underground, the marginalized, and the spaces in-between. This show presents two different approaches toward bringing the otherwise unseen and unimagined into focus. The Invisible City is about dualities: noisy and quiet, questions and answers, seen and unseen. As these opposing elements are placed in each others’ proximity, the combined works offer a new way of looking at what already exists.
There will be a musical performance by Spectronix (Dan Bitney) and A Grape Dope (John Herndon)
