Karl X Hauser: Fever Dream

Aug 4 — Sep 17, 2022

Check gallery website for hours and additional info

Please join us for the Opening Reception
Saturday, August 6th, 1-4 pm


​A lot has happened since Karl X Hauser’s last solo show at Transmission Gallery, a combination of catastrophic events almost impossible to have imagined back then in 2019.  Aptly titled, Hauser’s, Fever Dream, introduces  gritty figurative sculpture created during these bewildering and chaotic few years.  Horrified and horrific, stupefied, but still gamely carrying on, hopeful even, Hauser’s characters and personages resonate with the complexity and range of  human responses.  A tactile use of common materials contributes to the immediacy and sensate experience of his work in this show while a pervading sense of dark humor elicits a jolt of recognition and connection. See the work at Transmission Gallery Oakland, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, noon to 5 pm and by appointment, August 4th through September 17th.
