Octavia Art Gallery presents Nall: Florals opening reception
Octavia Art Gallery will present Florals, an exhibition of mixed media works by gallery artist, Nall. In this exhibition, Nall focuses on a variety of subject matter, including the flora and fauna of the Southern United States and France.
In addition to the artist’s sumptuous and meticulous handling of his subject matter, there is often complex meaning to be found hidden just beneath the surface of his visually dense works. To investigate these themes, Nall typically utilizes several techniques, processes, and media to create each work. Often starting with a drawing or print, Nall then constructs elaborate frameworks for each image out of driftwood, mosaic tile, and found objects, which makes the frame an integral component to the overall piece. Nall blurs the line between the two dimensional lexicon of drawing and painting and the three dimensionality of sculpture, allowing his work to inhabit a liminal space.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through March 5.
