Solo Exhibition
Michael Velliquette: Beginner’s Mind
September 15 – October 14

Tory Folliard Gallery

Best known for his elaborate paper sculptures, Michael Velliquette returns to this medium in his solo exhibition. Velliquette hand-cuts paper shapes and assembles them into complex forms akin to sacred architecture and three-dimensional mandalas. The formal symmetry, balance, and order of these works are meant to evoke a sense of visual equanimity. Velliquette forgoes his prior use of vibrant color, instead employing an emotionally restrained palette of neutrals and monochromes. Beginner’s Mind refers to an approach to living without preconception—a sensibility that characterizes the skillfully simple posture Velliquette brings to this new series.
