“Tom Driscoll’s recent sculptural works activate architectural space by exploiting the juncture of walls, floors and ceilings. The resulting corners become prime loci for the placement of cast concrete, geometrically organic forms that enlist and activate the entire gallery space as both foil and collaborator. Related hanging, pendulum pieces when swung arc back and forth against the white walls leaving elegant tracings of their movement. The normal gallery experience of static objects centered on walls is thereby completely subverted by Driscoll in an exuberant and profound way.”
– Hugh M. Davies (Guest Curator)

Curator Anna Stump


High Desert Carnival is a visual art extravaganza, presented by SIP Art Space in San Marcos, California, curated by Anna Stump.


The High Desert, defined as the neighborhood of Joshua Tree National Park and the Morongo Basin, has affected the participating artists with a sense of zany celebration and fierce independence. The starkness of the desert environment, with its huge skies, spiky plants and animals, exposed geology and extreme climate, seems to have pushed these artists to the brink. The joyous, surreal, and primal find expression in their work.
