Michael Velliquette - Beginner’s Mind

September 15 – October 14, 2017

Opening Reception: Friday, September 15 from 5-7:30pm
Artist's Talk: Saturday, September 23 from 1-2pm

Best known for his elaborate low-relief paper sculptures, Michael Velliquette returns to this medium in his upcoming solo exhibition. Velliquette hand-cuts small, simple paper shapes and assembles them into complex forms akin to three-dimensional mandalas. The formal symmetry, balance, and order of these works are meant to evoke the rhythm and repetition of breath. Velliquette forgoes his prior use of vibrant color, instead employing an emotionally restrained palette of tans, grays and whites. Beginner’s Mind refers to an approach to living without preconception—a sensibility that characterizes the skillfully simple posture Velliquette brings to this new series.
