LESS UP, BLESS UP: Havoc & Laura Hendricks -VENUE CLOSED

At a time when public gatherings should be minimized, The Argo House has decided to postpone all upcoming events taking through April 30th. All bookings through April 30th can be rescheduled. Please contact us at 385-205-0332 if you have additional questions.*****Carper Contemporary hosts Provo artists Havoc and Laura Hendricks at The Argo House for a pop up exhibition featuring Laura’s surreal photographic landscapes and Havoc’s minimalist mountain paintings. The husband and wife duo present an entirely new body of work for LESS UP, BLESS UP, an exhibition that references the artists’ collective decision to simplify their lives – from imposed religious obligations to frivolous materialism - and the ultimate creative freedom they experienced from doing so. Aesthetic decisions in both artists’ work visually reference this ideology, as excess elements and over complicated techniques are stripped away to reveal their work and inspiration in its purest form. LESS UP, BLESS UP opens on Friday, April 3rd during Ogden's First Friday Art Stroll from 6-9pm. Both artists will be in attendance for the reception.“Bravely and honestly, we considered what truly added value to our lives and the lives around us, which ended up in a massive overhaul of our belief system,” says Laura Hendricks of the show’s theme. “This work represents that time in our lives when we decided to simplify. Because the second we lessed up, we definitely blessed up.”--about the artists:Laura Hendricks is a photographic artist currently living and working in Utah. Most of her current work involves creating surreal photo collages by combining different landscapes to form one image. The end result is often otherworldly but almost always believable. Her work for LESS UP, BLESS UP is largely inspired by her mixed media series, The Stay.Havoc Hendricks is a Utah artist whose work represents the complex patterns found throughout nature, delivered through a minimalist perspective. He has worked on custom projects around the world with interior designers, art consultants, the surf/skate/snowboard industries, graphic designers and more.
