CIVILIAN ART PROJECTS is pleased to present solo exhibitions of new work by emerging American artists Seth Adelsberger (Baltimore, MD) and Christopher Sims (Durham, NC).
February 13 – March 14, 2009
OPENING RECEPTION:
Friday, February 13, 2009
7pm to 9pm

In his first solo exhibition with Civilian, Seth Adelsberger exhibits new paintings and a site-specific mural. Combining visual ingredients inspired by everyday occurrences and memory, Adelsberger creates complex, unconventional paintings of wild, exotic color. In the words of the artist, the new work “is where geometric architecture builds psychological masks and futuristic spaces. Elementary shapes and electric colors vibrate in a structured game of optical pinball.” His work recreates the language of landscape inspired painting and takes it to another level, repeating symbols and shapes much like those found in the multi-colored vector graphics of 1980’s video games. This personal glossary combines graffiti and nostalgic images to create a visual hypnotic language.

Check it out if you can, hes pretty rad.
