Chromatics is a solo exhibition of works by Lyndsay Rice that demonstrates an interest in ornamentation, structure, texture, and color as bionic augmentation for the body. She creates forms that operate as both signifiers and ornaments, investigating the parallels between plumage and badges, status, sexuality, and honor.

Using forms of communication both in the natural world and in societal structures, Rice magnifies, hybridizes, and alters militaristic badges and bird plumage to create a new language.

Exhibition dates: October 6 – November 4, 2017
with an opening reception Friday, October 6, 6 – 9 pm
