Art League Houston presents the upcoming exhibition,"Familiar," featuring the dynamic artistic duo Tsz Kam and Nat Power, also known as Big Chicken & Baby Bird. Through their bold and vivid paintings, "Familiar" invites viewers to explore the theme of duality and pairings. Kam and Power's works transform mythological creatures into characters with inevitable roles within an imagined world. The exhibition presents ornamental patterns that convey the rhythm of a dance, simultaneously known yet unfamiliar.

Through their collaborative work, Kam and Power create a new mythology that centers around the ambiguity of gender and the experience of shifting between girlhood and womanhood. Their paintings capture the tension between seduction and repulsion, oscillating between the two to create a rich visual narrative.

While set in a fantastical world, "Familiar" leaves the audience to question our perceptions of the world and the roles we play within it.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until July 22.
