This July, Grizzly Grizzly is proud to present Built/Building Environment, a group exhibition by Matthew Colaizzo, Jack Henry, and Rebecca Simon Miller.
Colaizzo, Henry, and Miller’s drawing, sculpture, and painting explore the intersection between the built and natural environments and the territory that is obscured and ordered by human and industrial forces. Their work examines the way this human/industrial control shapes our understanding of the environment as observers and as participants. Each artist’s unique material approach functions to edit these spaces, further curating their accessibility to viewers. Matthew Colaizzo’s drawings exist behind imposing, hyper-color barricades, narrowing our understanding of the landscape, while Jack Henry’s sculptures call into question the natural and industrial sources from which they originated, and Rebecca Simon Miller’s carefully painted and arranged panels truncate our view of the broader environment.
Opening Reception: Friday July 5, 6-10pm
