The Jung Center Gallery presents DIGITAL EMBRACING (Modification & Fragmentation Towards A New Wholeness) and Changing Faces opening reception
The Jung Center Gallery will feature two artists who work in mesmerizing color, but whose methods and media present distinctive aspects of 21st century culture.
In DIGITAL EMBRACING (Modification & Fragmentation Towards A New Wholeness), Kelyne Reis deals with constant metamorphoses and transformation by studying the relationship between computer art and the use of the hand, microcosm and macrocosm, fragments and unity, figuration and abstraction. What appears simple is in fact complex and multi-layered. Influences of the German Bauhaus movement and Pop Art can be seen in her acrylic on canvas paintings.
In Changing Faces, Houston artist and architect Sherry Tseng Hill explores the use of masks to reflect the human imagination and experience and what it may be like to be transformed into a different identity or simply to reinforce an existing social or spiritual identity. She uses ephemeral, degradable, recyclable modern materials in a deliberate reflection on the contrast between our modern era’s easily changeable, disposable culture and the underlying, enduring archetypes that shape the human experience.
Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display through December 20.
