Opening Reception: May 6th, 2016
DOUBLE TAKE examines the complexity of surface, alluding to static patterns, digital debris and concepts of camouflage. DOUBLE TAKE combines physical observations of cultural ephemera and synthesizes them into patterns that are abstracted through painting, drawing and digital collaging. DOUBLE TAKE attempts to convey feelings through color that are simultaneously soft, innocent, sexy, wild and repulsive. DOUBLE TAKE recognizes, dissects and sifts through the ambiguity of what we recognize as familiar and how we begin to categorize everyday information.
