Steve Briscoe’s exhibit, Worthy Mysteries, includes a stunning selection of found object sculpture, paintings, and installations that invite both contemplation and joyful delight. Using second-hand objects such as old signs, stencils, and chairs, he builds structures that seem precariously connected. His series of hand-made tools of unknown function seems to hint at our universal ability to create implements that embody the potential for both creative use and abuse.

 

In his paintings, Briscoe questions our ability to build understanding through language. Bits of words, diagrams, and symbols float across fields of color, offering multiple entry points to communication. Briscoe’s work embraces the simplicity of the everyday object - the tool, the box, the sign - but recontextualizes it to allow for a new understanding of our world as we experience it.
