Ceres Gallery is pleased to announce unmapped territory a solo exhibition of mixed media works by Sara Conklin running from September 4 to September 29, 2018.
Conklinís recent works tackle the mysterious emotionally driven passage of death, interpreting the journey as a peaceful exploration of past and present experience.
Deathís transitory state is echoed by the layers of mixed media Conklin employs in her process. Although the end result of Conklinís process is ultimately a hand painted print, the fluid layering of imagery creates the feeling of a painting. Ironically, these images are comprised of digital photographs of the artistís original paintings and scans of a painting bought by the artist at a flea market.
The journey that the viewer shares with the subject matter has overtones of movement and passage, dignity and purpose. The fluidity of the compositionís atmosphere enhances a state of weightlessness and euphoria.
September 4 - 29, 2018 Gallery II
Migrants Roulette Regina Araujo Corritore
Thursday, September 13, 6-8pm
In Migrants Roulette, Regina Araujo Corritore works with the ideas of gaming and migration - ageless topics. She looks at the historic movements of people, and how such movements across borders have become illegal. People have always been drawn to these travels in hope of reversing their fortunes. A turn of the migrantsí karmic wheel often means loss of family or death.
Using the archetypes from the Mexican game of ďLoteriaĒ Ms. Corritore invites the viewer to participate in the reversal of fortune the game of roulette invariably implies. A silk screen suite of prints on vinyl stickers depict the heroes of the Americas both North and South. These political stickers are the prizes awarded to the winners.
Ms. Corritore examines the relationships between play and struggle, games and work, change and destiny. The palette of her work shifts between terra cotta earth and cerulean blue sky. By using the visual iconography of the 19th and 20th centuries, she combines her images with a postmodern use of the past and the present.
