Ellen Mueller: Recent Works


Ellen Mueller: Recent Works

Mueller — an intermedia artist — focuses on humans’ resistance to change and a struggle for control. How these efforts display themselves is the subject of the works collected in this exhibition, which includes large-scale paintings and video works. Recurrent visual themes include corporate management structures, cult dynamics, and Sisyphean tasks. Although these works share many specific, personal associations and the dry sense of humor of the artist, the audience is invited to develop personal narratives and explanations for each piece.

An opening reception will be held on October 18 at 4:30pm in the Sleeth Gallery with an artist talk to immediately follow at 6:00pm.
