The Garden of Forking Paths, an exhibition of works by artists Loren Holland and Nzuji de Magalh-es, will be presented at the Track 16 Gallery in Santa Monica beginning Thursday, Sept. 8 through Oct. 8.
An opening reception is scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10 at Track 16 Gallery, 2525 Michigan Ave., C1, Santa Monica.
The works by Holland and de Magalh-es incorporate an assortment of media including oil paint, ink, charcoal, graphite, yarn, fabric and collage to depict simultaneous spaces, explore storytelling as a method of communicating complex theories and to construct conceptual mazes, a gallery spokesperson says.
With its title inspired by the Jorge Luis Borges short story of the same name, the exhibition revolves around the concept of the labyrinth.
Through their works, the artists combine references ranging from parallel worlds and alternative realities to literature, mythology, architecture and history, the spokesperson said.
Holland received a master of fine arts degree in painting and printmaking from Yale University and both a bachelor of arts degree in visual arts and a bachelor of science in neuroscience from Brown University.
After earning a bachelor of arts degree in studio art with a minor in digital art from UC Irvine, de Magalh-es received an MFA in studio art from the University of Southern California. De Magalh-es is currently pursuing an MA in music history at California State University-Fullerton.
Track 16 Gallery hours are noon to 6 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.
