pushes the boundaries of the medium to unexpected destinations with stacked arrangements and compositions incorporating elements of collage. With exhibition credits that include solo shows at Agora Art, Haus Collective and the Southwest School of Art, Rundblade’s latest opened at Hello Studio in July and comes back into focus with receptions on Thursday and Friday. Built around  images plucked from old books, his “Cloak Dagger Parallel Meridians” plays with two seemingly unrelated themes (“coded communications and parallel realities”) and recalls both the poppy repetition of Andy Warhol and the circular hallmarks of John Baldessari. Beyond technical know-how, what shines in this show is Rundblade’s fusionist approach, which plays with scale and depth while putting a sculptural spin on the practice of printmaking. Free, 6-9pm Thu, Aug. 3 & Fri, Aug. 4, Hello Studio, 1420 S. Alamo St., Building B #203, (210) 291-8640, hellostudiosa.com.
