Rob Brown & Melissa Manfull:
Structure Synthesis
Reception: Saturday, June 27, 4-6 p.m.
Exhibition: June 27–August 8, 2015

Two Southern California artists explore the ideas of logic, mathematical patterns and structure through works on paper and panel. Melissa Manfull’s vibrant and mystical compositions are influenced by the aesthetics of science fiction, architecture and game design, while Rob Brown’s work is based on experimental printing processes and his interest in cognitive science. Structure Synthesis showcases the artists’ unique approach to generating imagery and calls for a shift in the way we respond to visual stimuli.
