The Blast Factory is pleased to announce “Waypoint Black” a new exhibit of photographs from artist Stick Vega. The twelve 8 x 12 images will offer unusual and beautiful perspectives of Waypoint Public House.
"With the Beer Guppies show sold out so quickly and complete, I was given the opportunity to present some of my photography work. The concept developed on a rainy morning and a trip to Waypoint. I went with my camera and spent a few hours there exploring. I shot hundreds of photos of the forms and figures that make up the restaurant. There is always something new to see if you look below the surface. Common things become structurally beautiful. As I wandered around the space, I looked for things that spoke to me”, said Stick Vega.
The show will go on display Wednesday, May 21st, at Waypoint Public House in Monona, WI.
Artist Stick Vega studied mathematics and economics, earning a B.S. in economics from UW-Madison and an MBA from Edgewood College. He owned and was CEO of online apparel retailers WinterSilks and Venus Sportswear. However, upon selling the companies more than a decade ago he headed straight to his studio - The Blast Factory in Madison, WI - to create explosive, modern art with gunpowder and high-speed fuse. Stick's current work includes paintings, drawings, fusographs (exploded photographs) and writing. Please follow Stick on Facebook and/or Twitter.
