Fountain Street Gallery opens its national juried show, 11:11–The Depth of Perception, featuring work by thirty-eight artists who utilize an array of media including paint, fibers, video, and photography, as they explore themes that span from the personal and the intimate to the political and the socially charged.
What do you see when you close your eyes?
11:11–The Depth of Perception explores the concept of taking notice. For many people this action represents a single moment in time that encourages reflection and to focus one’s attention on the present. It can be viewed as the link between human and spirit; darkness and light; scarcity and abundance.
All art is ultimately introspective, with the goal of expressing the artist's vision to its intended (and sometimes unintended) audience.Whether this produces art that is political like John Buron’s video “Toothpaste Americano”, or something more ethereal and contemplative like Laura Radwell’s “Umbra No.8”, does not negate the relevance of either. The work in this exhibition is diverse, sometimes inscrutable, and speaks to the viewer in fresh, challenging ways.
