Seeing and Believing: Recent Work by James Surls

This exhibition features sculptures and drawings with strong gestural and representational elements. Surls’ art deals with the phenomenal and noumenal worlds we inhabit. He simultaneously interprets substantive experience, touching on scientific ideas like genomes and the natural order of flora and fauna while also attempting to give physical form to unseen elements that influence the course of events both large and small such as emotions, the subconscious, and the inexplicable urge of life to persist.
