"The World Unseen" will feature new bold, and colorful works by Pablo Dona and Michael Laube. This exhibition showcases works that reveal the temporality, transparency, and transformation of art and ourselves. Both Dona and Laube demonstrate a level of understanding of the dynamic elements that make up our internal and external worlds. Their work is a clear example that beauty lies in the details. The basic infrastructure of both mediums exposes the main element of the pieces, light, both metaphoric and literal.

Using commonplace objects, Dona’s work is compelled to expose the lightness in humans, a return to our childhood, our innocence. There is a heartbeat in each of Dona’s works, a metaphorical pulse emanating from the emotional strings pulled by the memories of childhood. His sculptures are composed of quotidian material, such as erasers, yet even with their manufactured uniformity, when observed closely, each piece is unique and individual.

Laube’s construction paves the way into a journey of ephemeral moments. Made up of glass layers and acrylic paint, this process allows every technical component of the work to become visible. The transparency of glass unequivocally translates the purity of light and opens up the viewer to an unexplored spatial and temporal plane, which adds to the playful dimension of experience. 

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through June 23.
