Leslie Wilkes
Optic Verve
March 29 - May 18, 2014


Leslie Wilkes' geometric paintings are initially based on graphic design patterns from the 1960's. Her use of symmetrical arrangements and unexpected color combinations create simulations of kaleidoscopic Rorschach blots. Wilkes' paintings challenge viewers' visual consciousness and perceptions with complex and arresting imagery.


Miwa Matreyek: Artist Talk
Fusebox Festival: Chewing the Fat
Thursday, April 24 at 3:00 PM

Miwa Matreyek Artist Talk! Presented by Women & Their Work in collaboration with the Fusebox Festival and NPN. This performance is part of Fusebox’s 2014 Chewing the Fat series. This is a free event.

 

Join us as we welcome internationally recognized and Los Angeles based animator, designer and multimedia artist Miwa Matreyek for a conversation about her unique process and body of work that fuses animation with live performance. Matreyek creates short films and live works that integrate animation, performance, and theatrical video installation. Arriving to animation from a background in collage, her work explores how animation transforms when it is combined with the body, both physically in her performance pieces, as well as a composited video element in her short films.

Our annual spring party will also be a night to savor. With funds raised, we will bring more of the art of our time to Austin and introduce the joy and wonder of art to more than 950 students in underserved schools.
