A combination of found objects and mixed media sculpture, Losh’s work repurposes individual pieces through shape and texture. The end result creates a beautiful shift in continuous lines and rounded edges. Ends April 4.

Exploring the politics of self-representation in new forms of media, Kenny works with a variety of mediums to push the boundaries of how we see ourselves online and in real life. His work poses the question: how much of ourselves do we really see, and consequently, represent to those we know?

Equally talented, but in very different ways, Carlos Bunga and Olivier Mosset juxtapose each other in style, medium and shape. The contrast works though, and the work feels refreshed, rather than cluttered, by it’s counterparts. Ends March 14.
