The Afterlife of Artifacts

October 14th – November 25th

Davis Gallery

The Afterlife of Artifacts explores five of Austin’s best assemblage artists and their power to reanimate forgotten objects into extraordinary works of art. Barbara Irwin, John Sager, Larry Seaman, Steve Brudniak, and Steve Wiman test the limits of conventional fine art medium by incorporating everything from beautifully worn metal scraps found on the streets of Austin, to the high voltage elements of old transmitters. Working with these reclaimed objects allows these artists to directly investigate questions of life, time, decay, and rebirth.
