Caleb Henkelman: VI
Working in both painting and printmaking, Henkelman is continually interpreting the seemingly simple shape of a box. The artwork is anything but simple, from the physical printmaking processes and the layers of color to the combination of shapes and illusions of space.
The show’s title, VI, references the number of sides in a box, a starting point in his art that reveals much more in the finished pieces. We all have boxes in our lives, what’s in yours?
Henkelman is a recent graduate of Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and he currently resides in Ames.
Reception Tuesday, February 5 from 6-8pm
