Geographies of the Mind

The Work of Joe Goodwin and Geoffrey Detrani

 

September 13 - October 25th, 2014

Opening Reception September 13, 5-7PM

Artist Talk: October 11, 1-2:30PM

 

 

Which is more real:  the physical world we have created that is gradually surrendering to the forces of the natural world or that of our subconscious perceptions? Artists Geoffrey Detrani and Joe Goodwin explore this question with their interpretive work. Detrani takes elements from the natural world and melds them with our constructed environment.  Goodwin’s studies of Jungian psychoanalysis are reflected in his exploration of the abstract.
