Exhibition | “Infinite Spaces”
Opening | 6:30pm Thursday March 5 2009
MFA Gallery Central, Pacific Northwest College of Art 1241 NW Johnson St
Ruth Lantz uses paintings and drawings to address notions of infinity through the language of the sublime. She builds on prior perceptions of the infinite to challenge the viewer to question what is fact. Using images which reside in the realm of space photography, electromagnetic brain scans, and slide cultures, she creates an image full of phenomenal beauty and awe but with intellectual implications of vast emptiness and space. Exhibition runs through March 28.
