two really awesome pieces by John Gilman
If you're in Baltimore you should definitely check out the two new pieces by John Gilman in the MAT Thesis Exhibition on the 3rd floor of Fox. John's a great artist, even better friend, and fellow SE Pennsylvanian, not to mention an excellent painter and craftsman. He cut and constructed these monstrous shapes completely by hand (no power tools) and it shows how much effort went into these guys. John explained that so much of what they deal with is man's desire to impose structure upon himself, especially in mythology, both Greek and Norse. The hexagonal shape is titled Protagonus, and the star is Midgard. Great stuff, John! Check out the show between February 19th and March 9th.
