Greg Wilken’s Terra Incognita

Power Station, HWY 5, OR (On the Road of a Thousand Wonders), 2011

By Tucker Neel

Greg Wilken arrives at his final images through a process akin to a fact-finding mission.

by Kris Scheifele

Image courtesy of LMAKprojects.

Nava Lubelski’s last show at LMAKProjects was a blood bath, or so it seemed. Along one wall, a row of white canvases appeared to have fallen victim to a drive-by.
