Art for the People Gallery presents Susi Brister & Dameon Lester: Fuzzy opening reception
Art for the People Gallery will celebrate the works of local artists Susi Brister and Dameon Lester during their show Fuzzy. Both artists blur the lines between synthetic, base materials, and the natural world.
Using man-made materials that mimic organic objects and patterned textiles that reference aspects of the natural world, Brister stages and photographs mysterious forms in the landscape as interventions that highlight the slippage between reality and fantasy.
In this sculptural iteration of his work, Lester’s pipe cleaners reference the open celled skeletal structures of Radiolaria, a microscopic plankton like creature. These sculptures portray a complex aesthetic between human and natural production; both systems control and influence each other, vacillating between the familiar, to objects of natural phenomena.
