Jerry Pethick

Jerry Pethick:
Shooting the Sun/Splitting the Pie

October 24, 2015 to January 17, 2016

Pethick's practice addressed questions of perception that have played a central role in the visual arts over the past four decades; however, his amalgamations of found objects, drawings, photography and optical devices that create new experiences of space are a unique achievement that resembles no other artist's work. This exhibition is the first comprehensive overview of Pethick's extraordinary activity as an innovative and influential artist. Find out more »
