Time Frames and Other Stories
August 18 - October 16, 2010
Architectural plans create the pragmatic framework for a complex narrative of built space in the exhibition of work by Tom Rose, professor in the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota. He links his interest in the phenomenology of place with imagery based on real places and actual photographed fragments of structures. The large format works create a grand, dream-like view of the mundane structures and a narrative that is both mysterious and arresting.
