University of Oregon White Box says
September 1 – October 15, 2016
Opening Reception | Friday, September 2, 5:00 p.m.–7:00 p.m.

White Box at University of Oregon in Portland is pleased to announce the upcoming solo exhibition by Bruce Conkle, Surface Glitch. An international icon for 2D and 3D art that rides the line of the surreal and questions humanity’s toll on nature and the natural world, Portland artist Conkle will debut a new body of work.

Bruce Conkle loves seemingly magical natural phenomenon like crystals, tree burls, hurricanes, fire and snow and volcanoes and meteorites. He is interested in creating work which combines art and humor to address contemporary attitudes toward nature and environmental concerns, including deforestation and climate change. Bruce's work often deals with escapism, artificial worlds and man’s place within nature and frequently examines what he calls the “misfit quotient” at the crossroads. His work has shown around the world, including Reykjavik, Rio De Janeiro, New York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Seattle, and Portland, and he is a recipient of the Hallie Ford Fellowship.
