Eco-Baroque: Universal Variance

This work is currently installed at Portland State University in the Smith Memorial Student Union as part of the
Public Art + Residency Project in conjunction with the State of Oregon Percent for Art Program

Bruce Conkle and Marne Lucas ~ Eco-Baroque

Exploring the concept of our 'Eco Baroque' art form, this installation conjures an environment that transcends visual decadence through simple or natural materials. We hope the public will draw analogies between the beauty of simplicity as found in nature and the luxury goods with which mankind seeks in order to try and separate himself from the animals.

This installation is sponsored by the Oregon Arts Commission
