A group exhibition of paintings, photographs and mixed media work, exploring themes of materiality and memory.
Featuring work by Osheen Harruthoonyan, Tina Tahir, Keijo Tapanainen, & Pedie Wolfond.
Using hybrid, experimental darkroom techniques, Osheen Harruthoonyan traces his personal and ancestral relationship to the Armenian Genocides, rendering the fleetingness of experience and memory. Keijo Tapanainen’s expressive hand-cut carbon paper figures use reductive techniques to capture the essence of his subjects through subtle gestures and distinctions in body language. Tina Tahir’s intricately rendered ornate mixed media pieces explore the relationship between beauty and destruction that draw from her lived experience in southern Germany after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Pedie Wolfond’s lush and tactile abstract compositions on paper radiate light, similar to her canvases. Smaller in scale, these works conjure a deeply poetic visual experience.
Exhibition on view on the upper floor, September 5 – October 14, 2018
Join us for the opening reception: Saturday, September 8, 2 – 5pm.
