Jack Damer & Lyndal Osborne: Obscure Objects of Desire

About the Exhibit

Obscure Objects of Desire presents a double career survey of two notable North American print artists and educators, both of whom have pushed beyond traditional notions of printmaking into the intersections of photography, drawing, and sculptural installation.

What Damer finds in close observation of mechanical parts Osborne has found through an ongoing engagement with the land she lives on.

Attention to the natural and the human come together in this exhibit—a chance to see two artists question what worlds we inherit, what worlds we are willing to inhabit, and what worlds we will leave behind.
