Dug Uyesaka: pulp n’glue – remix vol.1
July 17 – September 13, 2018
Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara
Opening Reception: Friday, July 20, 5:00 – 7:00 pm
The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to present an exhibition of recent collages by Dug Uyesaka. An on-going exploration of marrying paper and glue to form new, hybrid images, they document his process of constructing visual poems—evocative musings, distilled from the ephemera he collects: “I attempt to meld the textures, graphics, and echoes of old papers with marks that I make into a seemingly organic object. Sometimes, it turns out okay.”
Dug Uyesaka’s quizzical outlook on life and love of the arts germinated while growing up in the 1950’s and 60’s in the fertile San Joaquin Valley. Living out in the boondocks provided many hours to roam the countryside and appreciate the slow side of life, fueling his passion to draw and make “stuff” from his imagination.
The AFSB Gallery is located in the historic Acheson House at the corner of Garden and East Victoria Streets in Santa Barbara. Regular gallery hours are Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm and by appointment (please contact Rocio Iribe at 805-965-6307).
