Event Details

This exhibition will be on view Through October 4 – 27, 2018, with a First Thursday reception on October 4 from 6 – 8 pm.

Portland-based artist Mark Palmen creates experiential, elaborate artworks including holographic light installations, large scale sculptures and hand-sewn creations. Palmen’s visual works are influenced by his diverse interests ranging from art history and fashion to metaphysical investigations surrounding the cosmos. On view in the gallery will be his latest body of work, a collection of intimately sized embroideries which explore the artist’s musings on intergalactic communication.

Palmen considers his series of glimmering artworks as “beacons”; metaphorical human touchstones within a vast universe. Although his works are imbued with layers of meaning, the artist subverts notions of sentimentality in favor of open-ended considerations.
