Assisted Drawings: Works on Paper by Peter Foucault February 5th – March 1st, 2013

Looper, 46" x 86", ink on paper

Room Art Gallery is pleased to present our February Featured Artist, Peter Foucault. A Bay area native, Foucault’s artistic endeavors cross many mediums — from paper to video to installation — and all of which are fueled by his passion for drawing and mark making. He has created a series of Drawing-Projects, which utilize mechanized systems developed by the artist that produce complex abstract compositions. At the root of these projects is a constant tension between control and complete loss of control. Moreover, viewer interactivity plays an integral part in his drawing installations. Participants work in conjunction with a robotic mechanism over the duration of the exhibition to directly influence the outcome of each large-scale drawing. Process oriented and concept driven, Foucault often utilizes objects that reference printmaking techniques as well as complex multiplicitous perspectival states.

Check out the video below to see the artist at work.

Come out February 5th from 6-8pm to share a glass of wine, meet the artist and see a live demonstration by Peter Foucault!
