“A Fearful Hope: Alta Buden & Jackson O’Brasky”
Time Out says
Environmental collapse is the shared theme in this well-matched pairing of sculptures by Altan Buden and paintings by Jackson O’Brasky. Buden offers chunks of cement embedded with oyster shells, blown-glass objects and bits of man-made detritus that seem to evoke a future geological strata recording the current Anthropocene period millions of years from now. O’Brasky apocalyptic vistas populated by abstracted totems bring to mind the surreal devastation of Max Ernst’s wartime landscapes of the 1940s.
