Oct. 12, 2011 - PRLog -- WHAT:  In a world driven by 21st century consumerism, many possessions are intentionally disposable, often discarded by the culture machine. Challenging conventional notions about life, the rituals of the hunting tradition, home and the innocence of childhood, artist Bryan Christiansen transforms discarded household items that he finds into assemblages representative of the trophies, antler mounts and pelts prized by hunters. Stalking the "prey" for his sculptures takes Christiansen into forgotten city alleyways and parking lots in search of things once valued that are now overlooked. Explore his array of visually dynamic creations in this temporary art exhibition on display October 14, 2011 through January 22, 2012 in the Big Springs Gallery.
