Build a house, dig a hole features the recent work of Blake Shirley, Shauna Merriman, Michael Siporin Levine, and Erin Koch Smith. Using painting, printmaking, and clay, each artist forms and collapses information into colors and shapes in order to see a day more clearly. A paneless window, a wonky lamp, a floating head, a heart of coal are the result of creative processes that embrace uncertainty, intuition, tearing-down, and rebuilding.
