Eye on the Storm
March 1 – April 13, 2013
Curated by D. Dominick Lombardi
Opening and Reception: March 1, 6 – 8 pm
Gallery Talk … D. Dominick Lombardi: 7 pm
Artists can explore, reflect, extrapolate or rearrange in any number of ways, the barrage of endless data from hard news to social media that we all must navigate, initiate or muddle through each day.
The art in this exhibition responds to or reflects upon the sometimes-overwhelming storm of information in roughly three phases. The calm comes into view with mixed media works like Touch, by Anita Arliss, which captures the haunting stillness right before a disruptive event. The storm has representation with the collages of Chambliss Giobbi, which suggests the storm may have its greatest effect on the human psyche. The aftermath is expressed with works like Trong Nguyen’s Library, where the artist, in an attempt to put all the pieces back together again, writes the entire text of various books, word for word, on individual grains of rice.With these fresh interpretations through the artist’s eye on the storm comes a very different, and perhaps better and more thought provoking understanding of the world around us.
