This event has ended.
“In Bloom” features six artists from around the world. The seemingly spectral innocence of Erik Formoe’s (Norway) painted figures lure viewers into more questions than answers, while the gritty processes of Charles Cohan (USA), Professor and Chair of Printmaking at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, forego the digital assets of our times, favoring instead the physicality and exertion of traditional printing methods. Sculptor Huy Lam (Canada) ponders impermanence and brings the human impulse to impose order on the world into being by severing the flowing grain of wood with metal. Chiharu Roach (Japan) delicately ruminates on spiritual connections between humans, their emotions, and their behaviors, as Tanner Wilson (USA) offers a stark counterpoint to delicacy with his brazenly colored and haunting forms. Static forms are reinvented as chaos and order are intertwined into dynamic visual harmony in the prints of Ali Roudabush (USA).
