Curator's Statement

Intimate/Intricate is a group show featuring the work of Luke Buser, Luke Dolkas and Eaan Guardino. The thread of intimacy and intricacy that runs throughout the exhibit refers to both the tedious attention to detail and the relationship to the objects within the work of the artists.

Luke Buser uses typewriters of various fonts and alphabets to weave fastidious grids and sometimes optically challenging patterns into small powerful artworks that compel the viewer to understand how the process is even possible. He sometimes combines this with methods of monoprint and hand embellishment that lend hard edge abstraction to the soldier-straight lines of font. At times the fonts are sent flying into chaos to create pleasing random patterns that feel natural and wind-blown.

Within the work of Luke Dolkas the intimate record keeping of an old and dear friend are treated with reverence and respect as the letters, receipts, keepsakes and souvenirs of his 104 year old friend receive new life in delicate and minimal collage. Outlines and marks draw attention to shapes and rituals and bring the viewer closer to the rich history of relationship that lies within the work.

Eaan Guardino explores in print the details of larger sculpture that is a work in progress. By changing perspective to floating detail of a larger piece he focuses on both the intimate and intricate smaller snips that together construct the whole. Based on a series of carvings that will ultimately become a chess set, the strong geometric, boldly colored prints take the pieces from static to animated with minimal fuss.

All three artists will display some hint into process, further allowing visitors into the mind of artistic vision. Buser will loan a typewriter to the exhibit that viewers are encouraged to manipulate, along with trial end error scraps that shed light on the editing process. Dolkas’ treasure trove of scraps pre-arrangement will be displayed and a few of Guardino’s chess pieces that are in process will be standing at attention as well.
