Current Exhibition: Figure/Heads- David Bae & Erin Cunningham
August 23rd - Sept 23rd
ICOSA collective presents the first exhibition of a series of ten two-person member shows, "Figure/heads" featuring the work of David Bae and Erin Cunningham. In their respective media, the two artists present their own distinct interpretations of the physical/psychological aspects of the figure.
David Bae’s portraits merge a range of subjects and caricatures. They lack the continuity of traditional portraiture while mining its conventions. Delving into psychological headspace, his paintings both abstract and mirror the ways seeing, thinking, and feeling do not always align.
Erin Cunningham frames the body’s mundane folded spaces, and casts them in an unfamiliar light. In her metal, wax, and plaster castings, cross-sections of the body are preserved and inserted into everyday décor, coupling objects of comfort with the strange and eerie.
Opening Reception Saturday, August 27 from 7pm to 10pm
Gallery Hours - Saturdays 12pm to 5pm or by appointment
