Join us Friday, January 8th for a private viewing and talk at Markel Fine Arts. Curator, Marilla Palmer, will give a brief talk about the exhibit at the event. Complimentary food and drinks will be provided.
Marilla Palmer considers disorder the artists’ domain and one of the primary origins of creativity. Observing the different systems of order around them, artists make up systems to disrupt the rules of aesthetics, social mores, or perception to express a unique viewpoint. Entropy is like another tool in the paint box— if there is mess they study it, in minutiae. For the artist, disorder is more than the untidy household that Le Corbusier worked to obliterate; it’s an integral part of practicing art today. What many might construe as mental disorder can be fertile ground for inspiration. Artists will descend into the rabbit holes of their own imagination, and stay there searching for creative nuggets. This show is made up of work that uses architectural interiors as well as psychological interiority (or both) as reference, transforming how we perceive our environment.
