Ideographs is based on the concept of a symbiosis between abstraction and a mostly unseen, or perhaps misunderstood narrative. The transformation that takes place within the pupa as the metamorphosis of a butterfly takes place is one of the great unseen mysteries. Data that presented itself in one form carries within it’s imaginal discs all the information of a future transformation. In similar fashion, each of the artists in this exhibition carry the vestiges of narrative but transcend mere storytelling.
This group of artists has been brought together because each of them presents work that is formally interesting, and disorienting on first glance. Upon extended viewing narratives begin to emerge, be it direct or symbolic; arrived through conversations that the artist’s works have between multiple pieces, through gesture in marks and forms, or the juxtaposition of the “real” and the imagined.
