Worthy mysteries:
New work by steve briscoe

October 5 – November 5, 2022
Artist Reception: October 14, 6 – 9 PM

Steve Briscoe’s current exhibit, Worthy Mysteries, includes a stunning selection of sculpture, paintings, and installations that invite both contemplation and joyful delight. Using ordinary objects such as boxes, signs, stencils and scrap wood, he builds structures that seem both crafted and improvised. His constructed ambiguous tools tools point to our universal ability to create implements that contain the potential for creative use and abuse. In his paintings, Briscoe questions our ability to build a complete understanding through language. Bits of words, diagrams, and symbols float across fields of color, offering multiple entry points to communication. Briscoe’s work embraces the simplicity of the everyday object—the tool, the box, the sign—but recontextualizes it to allow for a new understanding of our world as we experience it. Sponsored by MAK Design + Build.
