Mike Rothfeld’s mixed-media sculpture employs a sci-fi narrative with a level of absurdity based on lo-fi materials and narratives reliant on special effects and imagination. Achieving a conceptual baseline for believability, Rothfeld’s sculptures are constructed to respond with a viewer’s own level of disbelief or acceptance, ultimately revealing a visual circumstance for a viewer to create their own reality within his work. In the Region of the Disprovable will feature a site-specific installation in the Peephole Gallery of new sculpture by Rothfeld.
