Outdoor is a collaboration of Ben Funke and Walter Early built over the course of 2 weeks in February. Featured in this exhibition are five large intensely colored modernist steel sculptures that will activate the garden with an electric palette. The duo’s abstract constructions appear to be following in the footsteps of Anthony Caro, Mark Di Suvero and Richard Deacon.
Early and Funke were studio mates during graduate school at the University of Notre Dame. Early is a sculptor from the state of Kentucky and Funke resides on California’s north coast. They recently exhibited their show “Chronic Fatigue” at HSU’s First Street Gallery.
