Nathan Phelps at 20 GOTO 10

Artist: Nathan Phelps
Gallery: 20 GOTO 10
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 12, 2008 from 7 to 11 p.m.
Address: 679 Geary Boulevard by Leavenworth Street

From the artist's statement:
"I want the first moments to go on forever. This is th space between thoughts which has the fruit we want. The thoughts themselves are only echoes of the radiance, and language is even farther removed. This is why I'm not naming the individual pieces, but titled the show to be what it is (neti neti). Maybe it's necessary to talk about it, and certainly it's inevitable, but the reality of what it IS has already become real in the viewer. This is what this show is about."

Nathan has done installations for the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, Space Gallery, and locations in San Jose. His work mimics computer generated lines and mechanical structures as it spreads across walls and takes over rooms.

With this exhibit and those before, I like to see 20 GOTO 10 examining objects and ideas, in an experimental light, relevant to todays culture.
