Building Blocks at Art Therapy Institute

  • Art Therapy Institute Carrboro, NC (map)

Please join us for the 2nd Friday ArtWalk opening reception for artist Jason Blyskal.

Artist Statement:
"Building Blocks" features a collection of works centered around playfulness. Geometric shapes and vibrant colors intersect across multiple layers to create abstract representations of faces and structures reminiscent of 90's cartoons. Using mediums such as wood, mirror, and light, many of the pieces are intended to be interactive or functional in order to encourage viewers to play along and feel like a part of the ongoing creative process. By taking the time to get involved and consider how something abstract to one person can be many different things to another person, one can begin to understand how others see the world. This exhibition hopes to promote this form of unprejudiced play and evoke a sense of childhood wonderment for what possibilities lie in store.
