FICTIONAL/FAMILIAR | Cybele Lyle, Leigh Merrill, Emma Spertus
Reception Saturday, April 27, 2013 6 – 8PM
Fictional/Familiar features two and three-dimensional work drawing on architecture, photography, and everyday objects to create an allegory of perspective and sense of place. To contemplate this subject matter is to contemplate what is retained in the recognizability of the familiar within the fictional. Very little of the original landscape, architecture and objects remain unchanged here, in the translation from formal motifs to the artists’ subjective lens.
