Encounters: Dustin Farnsworth

June 26 – October 30, 2016

The latest exhibition in this long-standing showcase for outstanding regional contemporary art focuses on intriguing three-dimensional art of this emerging North Carolina artist. Farnsworth’s hand-carved figurative sculptures encapsulate the artist’s interests in character, story, craft, mechanics, composition, empathy, and social commentary. The artist sees his work as far more than sculpture – he fills his roles of architect, storyteller, cinematographer to construct detailed, immersive experiences that lead the viewer deep into a visual narrative. As he puts it, “I create lush, emotionally charged rabbit holes to fall into and explore.” Organized by HMA.
