“Reality is not what it is. It consists of the many realities which it can be made into”
- Wallace Stevens
The latest show at ViVO Contemporary reveals the many alternative realities captured in the works of ViVO gallery artists. The painting, sculpture, mixed media, kiln glass, assemblage, monoprints and collage in this new exhibit inspire a new perspective and reflect realities that you will want to ponder more deeply.
Ann Laser’s Teabag Project and Joy Campbell’s book art suggests and alternate reality for discarded objects that redefines the nature of decay. Creative Expansionist Patricia Pearce lives in multiple realities which create inspiration for her captivating assemblages. Ilse Bolle’s wall sculpture seems like it’s from another world while Jeff Smith’s large iron sculpture seems both Paleolithic and Futuristic at the same time. Pixel Impressionist Warren Keating’s figurative paintings not only reflect the new reality of the digital age, but his aerial perspective helps us to see the world in a different way.
