Opening Reception: Surface vs. Sap

In their first collaboration together, artists Nico Gardner and Lauren Carter continuously shift between the personal and the general, the specific and ambiguous, creating new work in conversation with each other. With a primary focus on desire, ritual, identity, and the expression of human need, Surface vs. Sap addresses the power and persuasive nature of mundane, domestic objects.

Ordinary household possessions become intertwined in a person’s daily life as symbolic evidence of a sense of selfhood and identity. These metaphors are employed in this exhibition to explore the universal relationship between people and objects. The artists' use of found or purchased items is a starting point to explore themes that ultimately result in a collaboration of both material culture and making.  Riffing off of each other's frequencies and disrupting their respective practices, the artists create new works that highlight similarities in their decision making while embracing their respective differences.
