Morgan Bulkeley: Nature Culture Clash
On view through February 4, 2017
Humorous and ominous at the same time, Morgan Bulkeley’s active, engrossing images offer compelling scenarios where humans are pitted against nature, with nature holding the advantage. "Morgan Bulkeley: Nature Culture Clash" is a solo exhibition of paintings and sculptures by the Berkshire-based artist; Geoffrey Young, of the Geoffrey Young Gallery in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, is the guest curator.
A significant career retrospective covering five decades, "Morgan Bulkeley: Nature Culture Clash" includes a wide range of work, from drawings and watercolors created in 1967 and 1968 to a recent series of twelve-by-nine-inch paintings in gouache on paper depicting a vivid array of birds. The exhibition also encompasses carved and painted wood masks and panels, tiny wooden “whimseys,” large oil paintings, sculpture, and a site-specific installation. A video titled "Egg Wars", featuring stop-action animation with Bulkeley’s hand-carved characters, will be included in the exhibition.
