Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I'm pleased to announce an upcoming exhibition, Irregular Landscapes, that will feature my work.
November 8th - February 22nd
Opening Reception December 8th from 6-8pm
Toying with time, memory, and language, the artists in Irregular Landscapes blur the line between reality and fiction. What emerges is familiar places tinted by foreign elements. In Joe Wardwell’s work, the layering of abstraction and traditional landscape painting reveals phrases borrowed from rock lyrics. The familiarity of space and song allows the viewer to reminisce and recollect times now past.The viewer can no longer access those spaces that are still extant in memory - a type of nostalgia emerges. Similarly, Sean Downey and Cristi Rinklin borrow from visual narratives that are, at least somewhat, fictional. Rinklin’s landscapes are partially derived from memory and reference images, blurring the actuality of each place while, simultaneously, formulating an altogether alternate reality. Downey takes this a step further, incorporating more formal narrative elements in his work. Each piece, concurrently familiar and unknown, weaves a partial story - similar to beginning a book in the middle.
The Hynes Convention Center is located at 900 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02115
