Demetrius Oliver's (MFA '04) Exhibition Azimuth, which opened March 2nd, is the artist's third solo exhibition to take place at Inman Gallery, in Houston, Texas. Azimuth is a show of Oliver's recent drawings, which, according to the press release, "derive from an installation he created at D'Amelio Terras Gallery in New York in fall 2011." This installation, titled Orrery, "featured umbrella frames and studio debris suspended around a single light bulb, mimicking the eponymous model used to depict the movements of the planets and their satellites in the Solar System." In this new work, Oliver is recycling Orrery's "umbrella ribs and stretchers to articulate line and space in two dimensions." Azimuth coincides with the 14th International Biennial of Photography and Photo-related Art, presented by Fotofest.
