Greenlease Gallery Presents Paintings, Collages, Sculptures by Mühsam, TaylorOctober 30, 2013

“Land:Mark,” a collaborative exhibition featuring the paintings, collages and sculptures of Armin Mühsam and Caleb Taylor, will open Friday, Nov. 1, in the Greenlease Gallery.

This presentation is a visual manifestation of the lectures, discussions and critiques shared by these two artists during the last 13 years. Both artists examine the modernity of structures through contrasting modes of representation.

Mühsam paints cultivated landscapes that have witnessed extreme states of human intervention. Depicting dikes, overpasses and fragmented architecture, his work investigates the influence of technology on our ever-changing environment.

Taylor’s abstract paintings and collages examine the role of the body in our interpretation of constructed spaces.

Together, their works propose questions about the permanence of actions and the meaning within constructed realities.

The public is invited to hear Mühsam and Taylor discuss their works at 6:30 p.m. and to attend an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, in the Greenlease Gallery. The exhibition will be on display through Dec. 7.

The Greenlease Gallery is located between Van Ackeren and Sedgwick halls on the Rockhurst University campus at 54th Street and Troost Avenue. The gallery is open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday. For more information, contact Greenlease Gallery Director Anne Pearce at 816-501-4407 or at anne.pearce@rockhurst.edu.
