BIOTIC: OPENING RECEPTION
BIOTIC – A Group Exhibition
Saturday, August 19, 2017 | 7-10p | RSVP
Growth is the fundamental objective of all biotic components, every factor requiring energy and sustenance for proper evolution. The work featured in this group exhibition draws equally from environmental experience, mass media, and sub-cultural positions. The artists selected for BIOTIC are seeking to convey the often overlooked or undervalued messages of organic development and human influence.
18 artists explore the subterfuge and affect of their individual mediums, juggling immediacy of expression, perfection of surface, and ambiguousness of meaning. This exhibition aims to symbolize sympathetic relationships between life, matter and energy without an imposing a construct linking these exceptional works into a single category. In exploring the very nature of art both as cultured language and sheer expression, BIOTIC disregards the classical polarities of abstraction and representation, past and present, canvas and frame.
