Bernie & Zuzu brings BRIGHT PLAYFUL WILD to Garver Canvas. The lively, vibrant exhibition and pop-up shop of home goods, accessories, and prints explores the relationships of bright colors, playful shapes and wild patterns. With a focus on process, the work is intuitive and improvisational, resulting in compositions that are alive with movement and feeling. Printed, painted, dyed and stamped, surfaces reveal relationships, abstraction is employed as metaphor, and stories emerge between color, line, shape and texture.
