Visual Hum: Drawings by Kim Beck
Clemson University Center for Visual Arts presents Visual Hum: Drawings by Kim Beck, on view February 8-March 9 in Lee Gallery. Beck works in a range of media such as drawing, print and installation to survey architecture and landscape. Meditations on weeded lots, street signs, gas station banners, pieces of lawn and sidewalk urge a reconsideration of the built environment, bringing the banal and everyday into focus. Drawings made from flocked cutouts, images of cell towers, billboards, trees and found sawhorses, ladders, create a fractured landscape in a continuous state of flux: growing and collapsing, caught forever in a state of becoming. In large works on paper, lines drawn with charcoal and paper cutouts form piles of lumber, ladders, windows, and structural beams. Gallery hours are 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. There will be an Artist Talk February 15 at 5:30 p.m., followed by a Reception from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
