Synapse Selected for the 2011 Paper in Particular National Exhibition
The piece Synapse was of the 93 works recently selected out of 600 entries for the 32nd Annual Paper in Particular National Exhibition at the Larson Gallery at Columbia College in Columbia, MO. The exhibit will run from February 1 to March 4. The reception will be on Friday, February 4.

Synapse is a 26x42 acrylic on illustration board. The work depicts the organic forms of neurons found in the human brain and is juxtaposed with geometric, modern architectural forms of a university parking deck and a botany greenhouse. While teaching university classes one summer, my daily commute involved walking through these structures. These spaces eventually worked their way into my art. One of the projects my 2-d design students were assigned that summer involved working with both geometric and organic forms and bringing them together into a single image. That project inspired this work as well.
