Christian Eckart: "Trialectics" closing reception

McClain Gallery will present the closing reception for "Trialectics," an exhibition of new works by Christian Eckart that extend his investigation of the sublime and meta-sublime beyond painting/sculpture hybrids into digital and photographic realms. Eckart's continual explorations are founded in an interrogation of various tropes of 20th Century abstraction, while attempting to delve into underlying imperatives that have persevered in certain types of "art making" since the Renaissance, including a need to address the ineffable and unrepresentable.

The exhibition title refers to a triumvirate of concepts: the natural, cultural, and digital worlds. In cutting edge post-modern theory, the term trialectics refers to hybridity and/or interdisciplinary action which in its current usage proposes a kind of unity as in the unification of the mind, body, and spirit.
