Reception Thursday July 1st, 6-8pm
Large-scale ink paintings on Mylar and smaller format paintings on backing paper explore journalistic images of extraordinary events, objects, and experiences. The clear and frequent representation of these subjects can lull viewers into believing that they understand the real events that prompted the representation, or that the representation has directly communicated something. Obscured uses these subjects and the interruptive artifacts of the medium as an attempt to challenge the viewers’ assumptions of what can be communicated by representation.
On view July 1st – August 3rd, 2010
