OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY, MAY 9, 7-10 PM
Campfire Gallery is pleased to present RAPID DENSITY, a two-artist show featuring new work by Cannon Dill and Ian Hydeon Ferguson. Dill and Ferguson explore the hyper-dense roots of their graphic styles deploying integral narratives of compacted afterthoughts and the process of their inner growing subconscious. The show includes a series of mixed-media on paper and canvas and acrylic paintings on wood and canvas. Dill and Ferguson will also collaborate on a wall mural in the gallery as part of the exhibition. This is their first show together in San Francisco.
