Semantic Field

In addition to language, humans have also developed symbols to communicate. From numbers to scientific data, these modern hieroglyphs inspire the work of Dallas-based artist Ryan Gollsby. In his exhibition at Liliana Bloch Gallery, Semantic Field, his reference to these symbols subtly questions the trustworthiness of the systems we use to organize human life. Much of his work comes in mock scientific diagrams sculptural pieces that hint at data structures. See the work in its opening exhibition at 6 p.m. Saturday at Liliana Bloch Gallery (2919 Commerce St.), or through December 6. The gallery is open from 12 – 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
