Art on Main Gallery
Now through 9/23/2018
The City of Auburn and the Auburn Arts Commission are pleased to present an exciting new installation by Pete Goldlust at Auburn’s Art on Main window-front gallery at One Main Street in Auburn. The installation is viewable from the street 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, until September 23.
Goldlust has created a dynamic new installation titled “Skymonkey Encounter,” including swirling, interlocking fields of whimsical cartoon-like imagery, reflecting playful metaphors for art and community. Plant forms morph into animals, architecture takes flight, in a piece that is colorful, bright, vibrant and uplifting. Goldlust’s aim as a public artist is to work with communities to make their environments more engaging and beautiful, and to encourage the qualities of wonder, joy, and play. Drawing inspiration from sources such as early American scrimshaw, Japanese ceramics, Modernist European sculpture, as well as various contemporary artistic currents, the artist’s work is characterized by a playful investigation of abstracted natural form.
