Selected Curiosities showcases the work of four Los Angeles area artists working in a variety of media to create pieces that promise to pique the viewer's curiosity. Using clay, mixed media, and digital photographic prints Monica Furmanski and Janet Neuwalder will collaborate on an installation that speaks to both the micro and macro aspects of the natural world. Their collaborative effort is based on the "use of similar imagery that investigates the poetic and complex structures of natural and industrial systems, networks, and matrices." With nature as her starting point, Jennifer Tenace uses oil, acrylic and mixed media on panel to create lush abstract landscapes in which the mercurial aspects of process are evident. Michael Pearce will show his installation Mr. Pearce's Cabinet of Alchemical Wonders for the first time. This installation includes many mixed media pieces and large scale paintings and reflects Pearce's interest in the philosophy of alchemy, the base elements of air, water, fire, and earth, and humankind's longing to understand the phenomenon of the universe.
