Blake Senini: Dear Nevermore
Herringer Kiss Gallery, Calgary, AB - To May 15
Calgary-based sculptor Blake Senini takes inspiration from the relationship between the play of light and the medium of photography. Often working in wood, which he may finish with cochineal dye, lacquer paint, and brass or copper leaf, he creates evocative forms that range from the organic to the geometric. Rather than attempt to dictate a reading of sculptures that may suggest anything from a splayed fan to a heap of feathered wings, Senini invites viewers to bring their own experiences and interpretations to bear.
