Tom Betthauser’s exhibition When Worlds Collide at San Francisco’s Peanut Gallery closed in January. Betthauser is a quickly-to-be graduate of the San Francisco Artwork Institute. His work are full of smushed up buildings and crowded cityscapes, worlds of chaos and congestion.
Right here is an excerpt from the present, which was reviewed on Artwork Sensible:
The actual viewpoint that Betthauser employs in his current drawings and work, referred to as isometric perspective, is an indispensable software for architects and engineers. Drawn from the security of an eagle’s eye view, Betthauser’s exact work so intently mimics architectural illustrations that he’s starting to seek out himself in demand even outdoors the high-quality arts world. Borrowing from their visible repertoire, Betthauser’s drawings suggest a essential distance from which to watch a scene with scientifically goal neutrality.
