February 13 - March 14, 2009

Semi-Final Frontiers

at Civilian Art Projects
Opening Reception: Feb. 13, 2009

A new show opened tonight at Civilian Art Projects that combines seemingly disparate references. A sublime site-specific mural combines visual ingredients inspired by everyday occurrences and memory. Seth Adelsberger creates complex, unconventional paintings of wild, exotic color using symbols that reference mysticism and video games. Seth takes us inward into a world of color, optics and insights. The question is, where are we going in this mind game?
"The new work is where geometric architecture builds psychological masks and futuristic spaces. Elementary shapes and electric colors vibrate in a structured game of optical pinball.” - Adelsberger

Also on view:
