Articulating the Infinite

By deploying his triple-threat artistry — as a printmaker, paper maker, and book artist — Jeff Rathermel investigates the almost-microscopic detail of the infinite universe in his new show. Of his varied investigations, in which simple type or images are reiterated to invoke the mystery of recognition, one in particular stands out. The anthropomorphic Alpha and Omega is composed of a magnifying glass on a pedestal perusing a tiny book held in its outstretched arms. Resembling a small sentient robot, the sculpture is at once evocative and terrifying. There will be an opening reception from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, January 11. (Pictured: Alpha and Omega)
Jan. 7-Feb. 15, 2013
