This exhibition presents works of art—photography, collage, and paintings—that exist at the intersection of nature, culture, artifice, and perception. The theater of the self, influenced by art history, pop culture, and fashion, takes center stage in this international exhibition. Every picture in this visually lush exhibition tells an aspect of the story of our times. Photographs of constructed realities in the Flora series were created in collaboration between Neeta Madahar and the subjects of the portraits. African American Hip Hop culture meets Victorian excess in a series of watercolor-and-photo collages by Nigerian-born Marcia Kure. Hope Gangloff, who lives and works in up-state New York, creates a very contemporary take on the portrait tradition with a record of her artist community comrades and paints portraits of her friends that capture a very 21st-century aesthetic of clothing and mood combined with a 19th-century love of line and gesture. Houston-based artist Trenton Doyle Hancock’s collaged paintings and etchings are imbued with fictional narratives that explore ideas of reclaiming identity through the development of adapted personalities, which are illuminated by his use of repeated symbols and masking motifs.
