Artist Reception @ Galleri Urbane

Description: Galleri Urbane Marfa announces �Charming Dreams� a new exhibition of work by Peter Voshefski dealing with ongoing themes of nature, layering and patterns. Voshefski will be in Marfa for the opening reception April 2 from 6-8:30pm. This body of work includes site-specific installation, drawings and mixed media paintings.

�Archaeology is a theme across most of the work and a concept as well, my process itself is archaeological- works are often long term commitments that have many layers that are hidden and revealed over time.� Peter Voshefski

Voshefski takes what he sees and experiences in nature all around him and recreates it in his work. His focus on the tiny and the expansive become a dialogue between him and his surroundings. A wide ranging color palette with repeating bold colors often define his work and are created from color combinations that are direct from nature.

About the Artist:

Peter Voshefski was born in 1967 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He received a BFA from the University of Cincinnati in 1991 and an MFA from University of New Mexico in 2002. Voshefski began drawing and painting as a child. Much of the 90�s he worked as an artist�s assistant for the video artist Nam June Paik constructing sculptures, large scale public commissions, and installing shows in venues around the world. Moving to New Mexico in 1999 brought constant opportunities to adventure in outback, backpacking and painting at the same time. He participated in the inaugural of a program at UNM called Land Arts of the American West in which 15 artists spent a fall moving about the southwest region seeing land art sites, archaeological sites, and amazing geology all the while creating unique, nom-impactive land art projects and other art works. Currently lives and paints in Albuquerque's beautiful North Valley...leaving the city at every chance to be in nature.
