Canadian sculptor Gregory Blair discussed his work during an opening reception for his show entitled “The Unavowable Taxonomy” at the Talley Gallery on Monday, Oct. 17, which will be on exhibit through Nov. 11. Blair’s work is influenced by the notion that the concept of “nature” is a human construct developed as a means to define knowledge of the world. “By blending nature with imagery and ideas from other fields such as capitalism, new media, material culture, ecology, mass media and aspects of urbanity, my hope is to create artwork that functions both as a cultural critique and a source of wry humor,” Blair said. Located in room 212 of the Education Arts building, the Talley Gallery is barrier-free and open at no charge to the public.
