Crosshairs and Checkerboards
FEBRUARY 5 - 26, 2011
OPENING RECEPTION: Sat Feb 5th, 2 - 5pm
Checkerboards with game pieces. Xs and Os and tic-tac-toes with crosshairs and scope visions. Organized in grids, the mixed media works in this exhibition were produced in the past five years and depict, for example, corporate logos, stock graphs, air force insignias, paper-based and digital map images – many with military pedigree and references.
