FGCU Art Galleries: Presence: Ran Adler
January 30, 2020 - February 27, 2020
Wasmer Art Gallery
Reception, Artist’s Talk & Performance by the FGCU Jazz Combo: Thursday, January 30, 5-7pm
Drawn to Nature’s roughness, randomness and disorder, Ran Adler takes a meditative approach to life and his art. His gathering of organic materials (while wandering such places as along the banks of the Mississippi River) is the inspirational first step. Ran’s rhythmic, repetitive process of sorting, cutting, weaving, threading, burning and inscribing induces a prayer-like state and clarifies his intention…to share the harmonious transformation of chaos into order. The exhibition will feature new large-scale installation pieces that encompass the viewer within these concepts.
