May 1st we will open a new show, featuring Martin Wittfooth and Jean Labourdette. They will be showing both individual and collaborative works.
“De Anima”, the second collaborative project by artists Jean Labourdette and Martin Wittfooth, explores themes of dichotomy inherent in our present age. The second decade of the 21st Century seems to be reaching a boiling point of the “externalized experience”. This is evidenced in a variety of ways by which much of our globalized societies behave: the objectification and commodification of the natural world, a wanton appetite for the latest technological gadgets and the abrupt obsoletion and discard of “the old”, and the manufactured and manicured avatar-voyeur based interaction model provided by a wide array of social media. Nature has ceased to be our temple, and has instead turned into our playground, a dynamic inept at stewardship, adept at dominion. What seems to be lost the further our species travels down these paths is a state of equilibrium with the true self and a disconnection from a reverent, balanced, and sacred relationship with the living world. This show meditates on these dualities via a parallel series of paintings and installations/sculptures.
Join us on May 1st 6-9pm for an opening night party with the artists! Contact email@example.com to be placed on a preview.
