Bits of the everyday assembled into whimsical objects; stuffed animals peering out from behind kitchenware; lily pads unfurling in fantastical fashion: The works of sculptor Kyle Fokken and painters Bruce Nygren and Virginia Randolph Bueide bring a sense of uncanny to the playful fore in this exhibition. A spirited approach to transforming the quotidian into the remarkable infuses their work with a joie de vivre. Texture — the nobby quality of Fokken’s sculptures, the watery gloss of Nygren’s surfaces, the painterly abstraction of Bueide’s ponds — further animate the work.
