Art Exhibition: Householdments, John DeHoog: U-M Residential College.

  community member   < less

DeHoog's exhibit demonstrates his pleasure at working between the disciplines of sculpture and furniture and is influenced by makers from the around the world from Aleutian Island kayak makers to Japanese temple builders. Householdments challenges assumptions about stability, composition, and appropriateness while treating each object like a compositional puzzle to be solved. Most of the work is constructed in wood available from our local region thanks to the variety available but also due to the artist's sensitivity to the costs of transport and tropical deforestation.
