Genevieve Waller: Faux Bois
Denver-based artist Genevieve Waller is mounting a solo exhibition entitled Faux Bois at Counterpath opening on August 26th. The term "faux bois" refers to the centuries-old decorative art tradition of trompe l'oeil, imitation wood. In a series of photographs, sculptures, and site-specific installations that make up the exhibit, Genevieve uses the faux bois art form as a jumping off point to talk about the status of the real, the meaning of substitution, and pleasures of the fake.
