Artist Talk: Stephan Soihl and Steve Tilden

Join Blackfish Gallery for an artist talk with Stephan Soihl and Steven Tilden. Stephan Soihl melds physics and art in his elegantly designed kinetic sculptures.  Learn what goes into the “guts” of these beautiful machines and how motion turns an artwork into a performance of shifting compositions. Steve Tilden discusses his latest series of shellac and acrylic paintings that explore the Demeter and Persephone story from Greek mythology and poet Paul Merchant performs a reading of his poem on the same subject. Find out more about Greek myths specifically, the Centaur and Daedalus stories, as represented in Tilden’s glass and steel sculptures.
