211 South will present a two-person exhibition, Intimate Immensity, which features a selection of paintings by Adam Fulwiler and drawings and sculptural objects by Christian Schultz. Curated by Kellie Lehr, the exhibition will be free and open to the public from July 28th through October 22nd, 2021.
Schultz and Fulwiler are the winners of 211 South’s first annual University of Arkansas MFA Call for Art launched this spring. New collaborative works will appear in the show, including a 48 x 48 inch sculptural painting that combines the shared alternative collage methods and differing mark making techniques of both Fulwiler and Schultz’s practices. Schultz’s drawings and sculptural objects investigate states between play and serious engagement and include playful landscape imagery inspired by his childhood backyard. Fulwiler’s paintings explore the limits of crossover between fictional and poetic language and painting using dynamic line, shape, and color, painted, collaged, and sometimes sewn onto the canvas.
The exhibition title Intimate Immensity comes from the book The Poetics of Space by French philosopher Gaston Bachelard which explores the psychological affects of domestic space and how our perception of houses and other shelters shape our thoughts, memories, and dreams. Perhaps now, after spending so much more time at home due to the pandemic, we can more fully appreciate a kind of lyrical exploration of that place we call home.
