GALLERY OPENING: Insinuations

I almost forgot to tell ya! I'm having an opening tonight. Insinuations brings together a group of artists who play with the implied notions, giving greater extent to the joining of image and object. Chanel Kennebrew works in collage, exhibited as digital prints, which create a false image. She defines the reality of the modern day woman–exclusively portraying the modern day black woman. The advertising reality is stripped of its disguise, ironically in text-based masks, revealing its filtered version of real world through token expressions of diversity and the diminished self. Anthony Miler creates objects to explore the dichotomy of institutions and constructs. Pairing numeratic sequences that provide a stimulace for thought and self-awareness. Atisha Paulson’s photographs are lively city scenes where he explores the connections found within his environment. His double exposures create a conversation of object, color and form caught between moments and notations of memory. Meghann Snow plays with history of culture and the institution of art, using video to document actions where the formality of art is deconstructed. Visceral and ephemeral, the acts played on film bring an innocence and new vision to the creation of visual art. TemporaryGallery will present Insinuations March 5 through March 23 with an opening reception of March 5, 6-9pm.
