Art’s ability to reimagine reality in a multitude of ways is the driving force behind the exhibition Interpretive Realms. Each artist in this show creates a body of work that captures the essence and appearance of the natural world while also bringing a highly personal vision to life. From using the camera to record precisely detailed images in which the harmony of nature’s form is put on effective display, to employing the practices of Japanese art in works that give traditional form a modern spin, this exhibition utilizes a certain sensitivity to materials and adventurous approach to technique, giving each image an intriguing, multi-layered quality. With influences as diverse as Rembrandt, Abstract Expressionism, and the art of the Australian outback, these artists demonstrate the dramatic diversity between the world we live in and the forms of art that are used to express it. The result is a vibrant, challenging show that provokes questions while also thoroughly engaging the viewer.
The exhibition opens on September 20, 2016 and runs until October 11, 2016. The opening reception will take place on the evening of Thursday, September 22nd, 2016. Entrance is free.
