Opening reception 4-6pm Sunday, April 12th
Everything’s Weird Now is a collaborative effort between Porltand based artist/design team Harrison Freeman and Zach Yarrington. The intended goal was to create portraits of people they know using both images and words, and based on experiences they have had with those people. The images are meant not only to capture the subject’s likeness, but hopefully to capture their personality. Whether that is in a facial expression or an action or an outfit, the image is meant to portray the subject as they are known to them. The words were chosen to represent either something the subject says frequently, like a catch-phrase, or, if not a catch-phrase, then a set of words that were chosen to represent the subject. Of course some of these ideas will only be obvious to a few people. A stranger will not necessarily know the person in the painting or what they are prone to saying or doing, but the words were also chosen to create a narrative for the viewer. A choose your own adventure, if you’re not familiar.
