LVL3 is excited to present Germination, a three person show bringing together Timothy Bergstrom, Heidi Norton, and Derrick Piens. Bergstrom’s additive process of building up a surface creates an uncanny setting that demands to be examined. Norton’s exploration with material–living and synthetic–presents nature in a suspended state and confronts ways we desire, study, and attempt to control the natural world. Piens utilizes natural elements in his work to inform color and scale as ways to focus the viewer’s attention and to underscore materiality. Germination unites these artists’ practices through focusing on their methods of growth and transformation within the studio.
