Abstract

The work of the artists in this exhibition subverts logic in a similar manner. Each takes familiar themes and conventions and finds ways to morph and transform them into pieces of art that trigger a kind of reflection rarely found in mass media. The logic that dictates the work starts with convention, but is transformed during the working process into a way of thinking that transcends common thought. The discoveries made during this process elevate the work beyond simple craft, causing it to pose challenging questions to both artist and viewer.
