January 8, 2014February 2, 2014

Culture and Physics Collide


Gallery Hours
Wednesdays–Sundays, 1–5 pm

Join January artist-in-residence John Zaklikowski as he explores the connections between art and science. Zaklikowski will delve into projects and utilize art materials aimed at the study of perception and optical illusions, and the interplay of art, science, literature, and cultural studies. A number of his large-scale assemblages and other works will be on view in the gallery.

Visitors can help Zaklikowski create a community-driven project, using drawing pads and pencils, or discover his piece Enamored, a bed created out of tens of thousands of Lego pieces, circuit boards, and other computer components.

Born in Buffalo, New York, John Zaklikowski has traveled widely, both geographically in North America, Europe, and Asia, and throughout the world of books. The cultures of Italy, Japan, and Tibet have been particularly influential to his artistic development. He has had one-man shows at Untitled Gallery in Sausalito and at Dogpatch Gallery in San Francisco, and has been represented in numerous group exhibitions. In 2012 he was awarded a Peter S. Reed Foundation grant, and in 2013 he held a six-week residency at the Hermitage Artist Retreat in Englewood, Florida.

Articles on his work have appeared in Symmetry magazine, Fermilab Today, LHC Italia, and the technology quarterly Make.
