Morphosis by Jacob Lagasse
Artist Jacob Lagasse will be celebrating his latest body of work "Morphosis" in our Firehouse Gallery from May 7th through May 18th.
"Witness the rate of Morphosis as my ceramic creatures and still-life paintings articulate modern life through the combination of classical materials and techniques. Partake in the interaction by viewing the evolution of the animals’ mutation in their caged environment, while they also observe you.
My works entirety is a proposition into embracing the human vulnerability to fully express of our weaknesses, to give into our primal being, and to join ourselves in acceptance for the mystery of our metamorphosis." Lagasse
We will be hosting his reception on Friday, May 11th from 6:00 to 8:00pm.
