New Show at the Suyama Space

Last Friday, I got in on the opening for Eric Eley's in theater at Suyama Space at 2nd & Battery. Here are some shots that give the general idea:

If this conjures up images of WWI, that's exactly what the artist had in mind. He's a big fan of camouflage, so much of it is reminiscent of an artillery blind. I quite liked it, though it would have been doubly nice if the piece had a bit more depth. Since it was all hand-assembled, that would have meant a lot more work for Eley. One unintended byproduct of the structure is that it cast some pretty funky shadows on the wall. Observe:

Overall, it's a fine and interesting thing to see. It'll be at the Suyama Space until April 8th. If you're interested in seeing it, just go to Suyama Peterson Deguchi during weekday, business hours, ring the bell and enter. It's worth a gander.
