An exhibit of drawings entitled "Spatial Relations" by Orem artist Namon Bills will be on display at Gallery East on the USU Eastern Price campus from Nov. 12 through Dec. 13. According to galley director Noel Carmack, "Bills is a rising young Utah artist who is gaining a favorable reputation along the Wasatch Front for his conceptual paintings and drawings."

His large-scale paintings, based on the Hegelian ideas of synthesis, have received considerable attention in the Salt Lake art scene. "These drawings are representative of some of the collage compositions he is known for," says Carmack.

"This series of drawings (mostly graphite, but with various drawing media mixed in) was an exploration of form, taking my typical collage media and imagery into new spaces, replacing the collage material entirely in favor of drawing media," Bills explains. "This is the first series of drawings I've done since I was an undergrad, and the return to this medium was both challenging and rewarding." The drawings incorporate several visual elements which have characterized his paintings. "As in all my work, I seek to join the disparate elements (media, imagery, positive and negative space) into a unified whole. The subject matter - Egyptian sculpture, geometry and birds - is a collection of items that interest me on a formal and conceptual level. I don't prescribe any specific interpretation to these works, but encourage viewers to make their own connections."

An opening reception and artist talk will be held Friday, Nov. 16, from 7-9 p.m. in Gallery East. The gallery is free and open to the public during the academic year.

Gallery East's Fall 2012 hours are:

Monday through Thursday 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Closed Fridays, weekends, and holidays.
