About the show:

1 Way, Then Another is about the limits of normal vision, the confusion that comes from having expected sight thwarted and the need to embrace visionary paths for future survival. Karl Erickson and Andrew Falkowski have created a series of works that explore the visual and existential impact of op art, psychedelia and early military camouflage. The works include hard-edge abstract paintings, collages, t-shirts, and latch-hook pillows. The exhibition is the zone between the kinetic and entropic, vision and hallucination.
Karl Erickson is an artist whose interests include psychedelia, language, transcendental experiences, and counter-cultures throughout the ages. His primary media are video, posters, collage and latch-hook rugs and pillows. Currently his work is taking the form of an invocation of the potential for motivational sloganeering to effect real transformation and possibly even transcendence in the form of a hyper-kinetic combination of references.

Andrew Falkowski received a BA from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1995, an MA from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1999, and an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California, in 2003. Selected solo shows include Remain in Light at Illinois State University in Norma, Illinois, and New Paintings at Rosamund Felsen Gallery in Santa Monica, California. Andrew Falkowski lives and works in Chicago.
