Seven artists open up their inner lives in Solitary Spaces, an exhibition that follows singular visions through abstraction, surrealism, and faithful representation. What we see externally is filtered through our minds; it influences but does not define our artwork. The pieces included demonstrate the explosive artistry that occurs when observation meets imagination. Language, graphic patterns, action, and everyday objects all combine to create new worlds. Solitary Spaces asks us what we see inside our heads.
The exhibition is a riotous collection of colors and styles, with every artist operating on all cylinders to express personal and refreshingly modern points of view. Some depict the natural world, some explore gravity-defying figural studies, and some re-interpret the symbolic excesses of art history itself. The energy of the new and novel is the one thing the participating artists all have in common.
Solitary Spaces opens April 26th, 2016 and runs through May 17th, 2016. The opening reception will take place Thursday, April 28th from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
