Underground: Subterranean Economies and Ecologies

An exhibition by Wayne Barrar at Prichard Art Gallery, University of Idaho
On view 12 June – 1 August 2015

This exhibition presents large-scale colour works from two projects, both of which visualise the unseen. A selection from An Expanding Subterra investigates aspects of the commodification of underground space – architectural practices creating underground economies in raw or retrofitted subterranean spaces. A grouping of new works from his current project, The Glass Archive, uses photomicrography to delve into the fossilised and embedded ecologies of sub-surface deposits from the earth.
