Lily Pad | West is pleased to present Labyrinth, an exhibition featuring a new body of work by California-based artist Jeff Faust, as well as new works by John Paul Berry, Allison B. Cooke, Christopher Groves, Jarema Khrushch, and Michael Patterson. Jeff Faust will attend the opening reception on July 22 from 5 to 9 p.m. in conjunction with Gallery Night MKE. Subtly surrealistic at first glance, Jeff Faust’s paintings reveal themselves fully only after a closer inspection. Filled with motifs such as birds, nests, leaves, vessels and clouds, the paintings reveal paths of symbolism into which the viewer can project upon in endless ways. Far from creating imaginary worlds free from strife, Faust’s painted scenes not only acknowledge the reality of hardship but are dependent upon it. Symbols of balance and security, such as eggs, clouds, and fruit, are always shown in combination with an element of danger, be it a precariously placed bird’s nest or a vessel roaming a harsh sea. This juxtaposition contextualizes the scene, offering vulnerability and truth. This exhibition will also mark the second annual rendition of Lily Pad | West’s “Living Art” event. The gallery has partnered with local florists who will create sculptural renditions of a series of new works from our represented artists, each of which also relates to the theme of “Labyrinth.” Shown alongside Jeff Faust’s new work, the exhibition as a whole explores themes of discovery, multiple paths, and unique interpretations. Join us for an opening reception to view the exhibition, meet visiting artist Jeff Faust, and to vote on your favorite floral creation.

“What Lies Beneath”, an exhibition with Haley Krob & Renee Luna Bebeau offers a peek into the underworld, of places that are hidden away. These artists focus on regenerative processes and concealed networks that go unseen, happening quietly underground. Through natural dyes, handmade paper, and still life renderings of compost scraps, secrets of the darkness are revealed.

View new and previously unexhibited works by Michael Lagerman in his first solo exhibition at The Alice Wilds. Lagerman’s current process includes digital and darkroom photography, rephotographing film, and video, scanning photo-historical texts, and making image-based objects. Before Render takes a claim against imagined futures as it resonates a gritty feeling of truth about the present. The included works speculate about the origins and material cultures of images and photography’s ecological impact. The ideas in this presentation take form through the artist’s multimodal approach to image-making. Lagerman’s carefully sourced materials speak to his hopes for the generation of routes towards viable sustainability and the possibilities of photography.
The works in Of Nature lay between the boundaries of the physical and the imaginary realms– glimpses of ephemera and captivations of the natural world reverberate in dynamic, highly detailed depictions in painting, sculpture, and works on paper. Each artist transcends creating a mere likeness of the world around them, and instead, constructs images that achieve a visceral fusion of invention and recollection, beauty and substance.
