The Absolutes is a series of oil paintings on reclaimed wood. They started as an exploration into the lost genesis of western pictorial language and the historical parallels in philosophy and cross-cultural linguistics. The work has grown into a full language where concepts and stories are told through visual vignettes. Like any pictorial language, an impactful story needs to be edited down to the fewest elements necessary to tell an effective story. This minimalist storytelling ensures that the subject matter will be full of symbolism, often blending the line between artifact and narrative display.
Reception: Thursday, January 18, 5:00 - 7:30 p.m.
(Please note: The gallery is closed February 24 - March 4 during mid-term break.)
