In the Woods: a solo exhibition by Nick Cassway
The Center for Emerging Visual Artists and AIGA Philadelphia presents In the Woods: a solo exhibition by Nick Cassway which presents a series of illustrations in the context of road signage. The shapes, stature and materials literally become “warning signs” which are scattered throughout a darkened gallery and discovered only with the aid of a flashlight or headlamp.
The drawings were made with Cassway’s signature analog-to-digital-to-analog process and merge elements of fine art with commercial design, illustration and sign making. Hand-rendered drawings are expressed in computer cut black reflective vinyl (traffic engineering film) and mounted on matte black painted aluminum panels. The interactive exhibition allows visitors to move through a darkened gallery and discover the series of cryptic signs, which don’t provide direction, but on the contrary, contribute one’s sense of being lost.
