Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, Offers Works by Chukk Bruursema

Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, will present the exhibit, Amalgam, featuring works in metal by Chukk Bruursema, on view in the FW Front Gallery, from Aug. 1 - 30, 2011. A reception will be held on Aug. 5, from 5-7pm.

Bruursema is a self-taught artist working chiefly with metal and wood, layered photography and digital renderings. He enjoys finding ways of banding commonplace materials with those he creates, allowing them to tell a story. In exploring the edges where they meld, it tends to bring forth new possibilities in which he can express their unique dialogues and juxtaposition.

Bruursema’s processes primarily involve plasma cutting, welding, layering digital photographs, melding digital images, image transfers on various mediums, etching techniques, binding and layering the materials to achieve the desired amalgam.
