WUNDERKAMMER: NEW PAINTINGS BY JOSHUA FIELD
AT KOLOK GALLERY
Opening Reception

Please join us for an opening reception for ‘WUNDERKAMMER: New Paintings by Joshua Field‘ this coming Saturday, February 16, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Exhibition Runs Feb 16 – March 22, 2008 This special winter exhibition, which runs February 16 through March 22 features new mixed media paintings by Kolok Gallery artist Joshua Field. Wunderkammer is a German word meaning Cabinet of Wonders. Like the curiosity cabinets of Renaissance Europe, which were encyclopedic collections that brought unlikely objects together, these paintings explore poetic connections between seemingly disparate images and reference a variety of sources including the Voyager Space Probe, which carried the Golden Record, a 12-inch copper disk containing sounds and images portraying life on Earth. As part of the exhibition, Field’s exploration of the Voyager Golden Record includes listening stations where viewers can hear the sounds originally recorded on the Golden Record. The Voyager Space Probe was launched in 1977 and is now more than 9.79 Billion miles from our Sun.
