Buckham Gallery is pleased to present three concurrent exhibitions featuring Kelly Boehmer, Bill Davis, and Devan Horton.
July 30 – August 28, 2021
Beastly Luster Kelly Boehmer
No Dark In Sight Bill Davis
Penchant Devan Horton
Buckham Gallery is pleased to announce three concurrent exhibitions featuring Kelly Boehmer, Bill Davis and Devan Horton.
Kelly Boehmer approaches her soft sculptures with a tragic sense of humor. Beastly Luster explores the absurd beauty in anxiety. Using the teeth from upcycled taxidermy and gory visceral imagery, Boehmer symbolizes emotional vulnerability. Glittery sheer fabrics and saturated faux fur “soften the blow,” making those anxieties easier to confront.
Bill Davis’ photography reflects humanity’s vision for itself. No Dark in Sight conveys how artificial light occupies the night. This exhibit demonstrates the artifice of light pollution, why and how that matters by inviting populations to adopt foresight intelligence, employ reason, and manage their communities in less artificial ways. When night looks like night, we can embrace its lifeforce.
Devan Horton explores our culture’s obsession with consumption and waste by analyzing our relationship with garbage. Penchant brings to light our relationship with waste in hopes of convincing others that even through the endless social and economic issues compounding around us, our planet is always of the utmost importance, and we as a species must work together to preserve its beauty for generations to come.
Beastly Luster, No Dark in Sight and Penchant open on Friday, July 30 and run through Saturday, August 28, 2021.
