Project Description

VESTIBULE: Distant Revival

Artist: Michael Velliquette | Curator: Kendra Larson
April 13th, 2013 – April 27th, 2013

Distant Revival is a new body of low-relief, cut paper constructions by mixed-media artist Michael Velliquette. Velliquette revisits the vocabulary of symbols and images found in his earlier works set in mythological, scenic narratives, exploring themes of transcendence, transformation and otherness.

Signed copies of Velliquette’s book Lairs of the Unconscious will be available for purchase.
