Michael Thomsen: Nebular Hypothesis
To celebrate its new location above Red Stag Supper Club, Friedman Iverson Law Firm is initiating a series of art exhibitions. The kick-off is the thickly rendered and intensely immersive abstract work of Minneapolis artist Michael Thomsen. He's better known in these parts as a sculptor of vast assemblages. But before Thomsen went in that direction, he created multi-layered paintings bubbling with textures, mysterious depths, and secret meanings. For this show, he returned to the studio to once again paint, building new work by repeatedly revisiting canvases to change, augment, and transform yesterday's vision into something even more out of this world. The opening reception is from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, August 3. (Pictured: Michael Thomsen, Asimov)
