    grayDUCK Gallery: Serene Disturbance

    Listen: "Scattered along the shores of a growing lake, small volcanic rocks disintegrate from endless fractures. Left behind in the wake of a glacier’s now constant recession, these scarred tokens from the mountain show an array of colorful shards between their dark crevices." And this new exhibition by Dameon Lester is the exploration of one such rock, transmediated via modest materials and repetitive minimal shapes, abstractly focusing on our cause and effect with nature.
