Since the first cave paintings 40,000 years ago, humans have both documented and created reality through image-making. This theme runs through art history, whether we are talking about a 16th century still life or a collage created to express your love for Justin Trudeau.
Now we live in the Instagram era, which blurs the line between reality and pictorial fiction to a degree never before seen. A vacation snapshot is also a shoe advertisement and a carefully edited addition to the personal brand. This exhibition seeks to explore three tendencies: works that reflect reality, works that create fictions, and works that mediate the two.
Artwork depicted is a painting by Ellen Dieter.
A reception will be held on Thursday, June 21 at 6:30PM. All are welcome!
