Expanding the Matrix

Recent CSULB BFA printmaking graduate Brennan Wheeler is among 15 California artists represented in this exhibition at the Weingart Gallery. His art work in "Expanding the Matrix" features urban Los Angeles. Combining digital printing with silkscreen, his two prints use maps, a photo of people on a city street, and line drawings of pigeons from an old field notebook, among other elements. Brennan talked about his repeated use of the common pigeon. It's a bird that seems to thrive in urban environments, he said, and references "the inherent transient nature of Los Angeles."

Occidental's "Expanding the Matrix" printmaking exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on weekdays in the Weingart Gallery on the College campus, located at 1600 Campus Road, Los Angeles. Admission is free.
