UNDER THE INFLUENCE
The reflective creation of individuality, under the influence of something or someone, with the original works of over 60 influential artists.
Art through a looking glass. This is an exhibit about reflection and perception. This is about tribute. This is about what inspires and compliments. It’s about respect. While mirrors are meant to reflect, what we see is just a distorted perception of another perception. The artists have re-created a favorite piece by an artist they have been inspired by, yet in their own unique style and another piece that is original in the style of that personally influential artist. “To imitate someone is to pay the person a genuine compliment.”
We are all an original, but a composite too. Paradoxically, always being a teacher, while always being a student. We learn from others and add our own imagination. MIRROR/MIRROR, seeing the same, but seeing differently.
