The Whole EnchiladaMarch 26–April 30, 2015
Adam Back's solo exhibition features mixed media works generated through reflection on the gratuity and excess embedded in life.
The Whole Enchilada is part of Back’s Integrative Project in the Arts & Theology (IPIAT), which builds on his love for the material, ordinary things of this world and pays homage to his Texan roots. Back will deliver his IPIAT presentation at 7:30 pm in the Regent College Chapel.
"The various practices mixed media occasions—of looking everywhere for ideas and materials to work with, of attempting to make connections past the readily apparent—shaped a way of seeing such a process of working as a way of knowing the world: of experiencing it, sharing in it, and sharing it with others. I want to create beautiful and sensuous work that calls us to the world that we have been gifted, that calls us back to the embodied life of creatures with senses. Mixed media is not only a way of my knowing the world, but of participating in it."
