About this title
"Their Arising and Passing Away" is a survey of the recent art of Michael Velliquette, and a followup to his monograph "Lairs of the Unconscious". Velliquette's sculptural cut paper constructions insist on a new spiritual vocabulary, combining aspects of early 20th century formalism and contemporary sensibilities about the handmade with the visual lexicon he has developed over the past decade. Velliquette's vocabulary is bright, dense and ornamental, punctuated with recurring motifs such as hands, eyes, flowers, planets, mandalas and goofy, smiley faces. Velliquette introduces gestural and accidental abstraction to these new works, creating moments both subtle and energizing when contrasted with the more tightly controlled areas. Working from background to foreground, their successive layering creates elaborate dimensional strata. In addition to his work with cut paper, the catalog also survey's his recent mixed media sculpture, installations, and works on paper. With essays by Sara Krajewski, Evan J. Garza, Hamlett Dobbins and Marc Mitchell.About the Author:
