Flap — Charles Sommer, visiting artist — Gallery 2
Artist Talk: Wed 5 June, 12 Noon 

Flap is a word used to describe a series of often unexplained phenomena within a particular period of time or geographic region. In Flap the artist presents work that draws from both historical and fictive accounts and ideas about the UFO phenomena in particular the orbs of light reported by pilots during WWII referred to as “Foo Fighters”. The drawings also draw upon a fasciation with monolithic structures modern, historical and fictional. The work, grounded in landscape, depicts through graphite drawings, moments and artifacts of a world that fluctuates between an abstract and fantastical space.
